A vision of one man's desire to restore peace in a country ravaged by war. Late at night in a foreign land, an English army sweeps through the landscape under cover of darkness and takes the seat of power. Struggling to contain his men and the ambitions of his superiors, the commanding officer attempts to negotiate the unspoken rules of this unfamiliar country. This is Scotland in the eleventh century at the height of the fight for succession of the Scottish throne.Performers Siobhan Redmond (Gruach), Jacob Anderson (Soldier), Brian Ferguson (Malcolm), Lisa Hogg (Gruach's woman/Hen Girl), Joshua Jenkins (Soldier/Lord), Alex Mann (Egham), Tony McGeever (Soldier/Lord), Mairi Morrison (Attendant), Jonny Phillips (Siward), Daniel Rose (Soldier), Ewan Stewart (Macduff), Sam Swann (Boy Soldier).
