John McGrath


Estates, Writers: Playwrights

John McGrath spent his whole life campaigning for a popular theatre that was politically engaged, entertaining and relevant. His campaign took many forms, as a writer, director, and producer. Most famously he formed 7:84, a company named after the statistic that 7 per cent of the population of Britain owns 84 per cent of the nation's wealth. He wrote and directed over sixty plays including The Cheviot, The Stag and the Black, Black Oil and Border Warfare. He died from leukaemia in January 2002.
