Description

Willie MacRae – anti-nuclear campaigner, SNP politician and successful lawyer. His death prompted speculation that he was murdered by the state. MacRae was found dying in his car on a Highland road in 1985 with a single gunshot wound to the head, apparently fired from his own gun. Was he under surveillance the day he died and was he killed to protect government interests? It is a moving and thought-provoking play, offering a reminder of dark political times that resonates today. www.andypaterson.com
