3000 Trees: The Death of Mr William McRae by Andy Paterson
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? Was he killed to protect government interests? Now in its fourth year of touring, this is a moving and thought-provoking play, offering a reminder of dark political times that resonates today.
