Greater Shall Draw the Lesser/Towards the Union/Fruits of Union Border Warfare looks long and hard at Scotland's tempestuous relationship with England, showing Scotland to forever be on the wrong side of the political and economic struggle. One of two epic trilogies on Scottish history (see also John Brown's Body) produced by the aptly named Wildcat, the theatre and independent television production company that McGrath set up as an offshoot from 7:84. [PG]
