  • 3000 Trees: The Death of Mr Willian MacRae

    Andy Paterson's fringe smash play has gathered a cult following since its first sell-out run in 2014. 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 Highlands 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? Now in its third year of touring, this is a moving and thought-provoking play, offering a reminder of dark political times that resonates today.

    Dr Laura Bailey knows how to explain to everyone counter-intuitive double slits experiments or the paradox of a cat in a box, being dead and alive at the same time. She believes the equations that tell her unequivocally of the existence of a myriad of different universes, but when faced with a crucial event, science falls short of showing her a way out. Written by a PhD in quantum mechanics, The Principle of Uncertainty blends some of the more advanced ideas of physics with a powerful emotional punch that will leave the audience reeling.
