“Britain, it’s a corpse. Still twitching, oh yes, but not long to go now. And we’ve got to get clear as fast as we can.”

The multi-award-winning Finborough Theatre presents the world premiere of David Hutchison’s new play The Blood is Strong playing for a limited run of six Sunday and Monday evening and Tuesday matinee performances.

Scotland, today. Alec Baillie used to be a famous singer of Scottish popular music. No Hogmanay was complete without him, but now he finds himself out of date and forgotten as tastes have moved on, and the country itself is changing around him. His daughter is an aspiring Scottish National Party MSP anxious to be part of an independent Scotland in which she sees no place for the traditional cosy view of the nation that her father represents…

This timely play is both a compelling human story and an exploration of what has been happening politically and culturally north of the border. And what that might mean for England and the English.
