Strathoykel, Sutherland. "When the Sheriff and his men arrived, the women were on the road and the men behind the walls. The women shouted 'Better to die here than America or the Cape of Good Hope'. The first blow was struck by a woman with a stick. The gentry leant out of their saddles and beat at the women's heads with their crops." (John McGrath)

Book Description:

A Student Edition of one of the most defining plays of the twentieth century, which tells the history of the Scottish underclass and, in its style and mission, reconceived Scottish theatre.

About the Author:

John Peter McGrath, (1935-2002), was a Liverpudlian playwright of Irish descent, best known for his work with the 7:84 theatre company. His most successful play, The Cheviot, the Stage and the Black, Black Oil (1973) tells the story of the clearance of the Scottish highlands, first for grazing, then shooting and finally for oil. Indeed, McGrath took up the cause of Scottish independence as a focus of his writing, placing the issue hand in hand with his efforts at a popular, radical theatre.

Upon McGrath's death at the age of 67 Michael Billington wrote: "no one since Joan Littlewood did more to advance the cause of popular theatre in Britain than John McGrath".
