There is only one football champion in Scotland, and its colours are maroon and khaki. 1914. Edinburgh’s Heart of Midlothian Football club have won 19 of 21 matches and are on the brink of winning the Scottish League Championship. When, in a show of extraordinary comradery and courage, 13 players enlist together to serve in McCrae’s Battalion. This is their story. An evocative and dramatic journey through Tynecastle Park led by the players/soldiers in a unique site-specific performance. Follow The Hearts from the football fields of Gorgie, to the battlefields of the Somme.
