An Act of Union

A new sung-through musical by Andy McGregor about a young man trying to find hope and purpose in a fractured Scotland.

It’s 2033. Tensions are boiling over after Scotland votes ‘No’ in a momentous second Independence referendum.

A lost young man called Hector has just been fired from stacking shelves when he meets Sylvia, who convinces him to join ‘Freedom Scotland’ – a new political group led by her old History teacher.

Hector finally finds purpose and love in his new activist life but slowly realises that the group is not everything that it’s made out to be…

An Act of Union is a new sung-through musical by acclaimed writer Andy McGregor (Spuds, Battery Park), starring Ross Forbes-MacKenzie, Hannah Visocchi and Matthew McKenna.
