February 05
7:84 theatre have been well known for many years for getting down to the nitty gritty of politics and pointing out things that many in government and elsewhere might want to forget about.  Combining the satire to create many laughs along the way but undoubtedly making more people think about the problems of the day.

In Caithness they played at the Mill theatre in 2004 as part of a tour of small venues.  Included were references to North Action Group's fight to save maternity services at Caithness General Hospital in Wick along with other health related campaigns.

The 7:84 Theatre Company was set up by John McGrath in 1971. Its name derived from a fact, revealed in the Economist, that 7% of the nation owned 84% of the country's wealth. The company's aim was to take popular, political theatre to venues shunned by established national and regional companies.
