The philosopher David Hume and the economist Adam Smith explore twenty-first century Scotland with their travel companion Eve, a Scottish everywoman, in this extraordinary journey of enlightenment. Jo Clifford’s play is a timely reminder of how the greatest ideals can become sullied and how we have recklessly blurred the delicate distinctions between value, price, cost and worth.
