Apparently, back in the day us McClouds used to be the Thanes of Queensferry, before all that shit got stamped out by the English . . . We've got Royal Blood in us he says, and he says when we eventually realise we should've voted Yes not No Dad's gonna rise up to be Thane of Queensferry once more. Pop Sheeran, proudly shouldering the family trade of restoring the Forth Bridge, is about to lose it all. A global corporation has bought this Scottish icon, bringing with them innovative new paint. How will Pop fight back when he realises he's painting himself out of a job? Diary of a Madman is a sharply political, witty new adaptation of Gogol's classic story, reimagined in a contemporary Scotland on the brink of voting for independence. The play received its world premiere at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, on 5 August 2016 before opening at the Gate Theatre, London, in September 2016.
