Adam Smith – The Invisible Hand

A dramatic representation of the life of Adam Smith, supported by Kirkcaldy 4 All. His friends, his enemies and the person who shaped his life, his mother, Margaret Smith. The play demonstrates how Adam Smith has been interpreted through the ages and why he’s still relevant now. Four actors portray Adam Smith, David Hume, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Voltaire, Robert Burns and Margaret Smith. The Scottish Enlightenment and the impact of the French Revolution form the background to the emergence of Adam Smith’s two great books, The Wealth of Nations and The Theory of Moral Sentiments.

Performances run from 11th – 26th August at 3pm.

Venue 305 – Panmure House
