DetailsI have seen what we have done... Where did we go wrong?
Philosopher, David Hume and father of modern economics, Adam Smith awake in Edinburgh in the early 21st Century. To their bewilderment, joy and horror, it is a prerevolutionary world where all the knowledge they ever dreamt of is at everyone's fingertips and the utopia of a free market economy is a reality. But at what cost to the planet and to humanity? With their fellow traveller, Eve, a Scottish everywoman, Hume and Smith embark on an extraordinary journey of enlightenment - from the concrete New Towns of Scotland's central belt, to Silicon Glen, Ecstasy and the gay clubs of Edinburgh. The Tree of Knowledge
is a wildly imaginative, hilariously funny and deeply moving new play from one of Scotland's most important playwrights. Age recommendation: 14+Performers Neil McKinven (Adam Smith), Gerry Mulgrew (Hume), Joanna Tope (Eve).
