I'd always been interested in the referendum. Followed every bit of it. Was as surprised as anybody at the result. When I saw that they needed new people for the transition, experienced people, I jumped at the chance. Scotland has gained independence. It's the eve of the Scottish Foreign Minister giving her first public address and in half an hour she is due to make a keynote speech outlining the nation's relationship with its neighbours in the former UK. There is a problem. Aside from being on the brink of giving birth, she is refusing to speak the form of words she's been given. She has something else she wants to say. Spoiling is a brilliant political comedy that boldly and humorously deals with some inflammatory issues. It is the only one in fifty plays by the Traverse's writers to receive a full commission in 2014. It received its world premiere at the Traverse Theatre on 28 July 2014.

MEDIA REVIEWS
McCann uses his own facility with words to lay bare the treachery of political language and suggest that it's time to speak plainly and truthfully at last. * Guardian *
Beyond the ephemeral moment of the referendum, this lively piece also has timely points to make about the tension between idealism and pragmatism in politics and the relationship between career politicos and an exasperated electorate. * The Times *
