The Giftie Gi’en Us is a short play (approx 15 mins) which was originally written in 1992 to be part of 7:84 (Scotland)’s SCOTLAND MATTERS (and that production featured a young David Tennant!). The subject of Scottish independence is still relevant today and this comedic look at the situation as an Englishman and his Scottish wife prepare to divorce has resonance. Add the appearance of Scottish superhero, Captain Caledonia, and you’ll see that this isn’t a po-faced political diatribe.
