Murder Under Trust: The Massacre at Glencoe
4 Extra Debut. Events leading up to the Highland massacre in 1692, where soldiers rose up and killed their lodging hosts. Starring John Buick.
In 1692 soldiers billeted in the homes of the MacDonald clan in Glencoe rose up and killed their hosts. Was this Highland massacre the inevitable outcome of a long-standing clan feud? Or were there other factors behind this infamous betrayal? Adrian Bean's play - based on the contemporary parliamentary Commission Of Enquiry into the massacre and on historian John Prebble's seminal book, Glencoe - dramatises these tragic 17th century events.
