Sailmaker in Context

Literary Contexts: Scottish Plays

In the early 20th century, Scotland’s shipyards went from being the busiest in the world to relics of the past. Discussing Scotland’s industrial transformation and subsequent decline, changing gender roles and societal norms, as well as the Irish-Scottish and Catholic-Protestant divisions, this video explains the historical context behind Alan Spence’s ‘Sailmaker’. It provides a valuable accompaniment to N5 Drama and English students studying this play.
