Description

In his cell, woodturner Daniel McNaughton, wronged by his father, dismissed by the Glaswegian legal establishment, awaits sentence for his botched attempt to shoot Prime Minister Robert Peel. Lawyers are keen to use him as a test case for pleas of insanity in murder trials. Whatever the outcome, it will set a precedent for a hundred years... The McNaughton Rules. This prize-winning dramatic monologue by Steve Gooch is both powerful and engaging but is also laced with rueful humour.

Jason Harvey is outstanding in this one man production. The story is fascinating, but it is Harvey who captivates. An acting masterclass.
