THE CRUSHING OF THISTLES – historical drama based around a momentous period of 150 years. It starts with a huge financial disaster of the Darien project that led to the Union with England. This was followed by the Jacobite uprisings, the Highland Clearances, and emigration to the New World. The bright and innovative period of the Scottish Enlightenment also occurred during this period.
The events are all linked through generations of families and friends. SYNOPSIS
