Part of the National Theatre of Scotland's Five Minute Theatre 21st-22nd June, 2011.

Midwinter is a time known in many cultures as a time for rebirth and for ghosts. A ghostly figure calling himself Lachlan Macquarie visits a park bench at sunset. Lachlan Macquarie, hailng from the Isle of Ulva on the West Coast of Scotland is known as the Father of Australia. He turned a rundown penal colony into the start of modern Australia -- introducing, among other things, the first Australian Bank, court systems and hospitals. But how will this ghostly figure feel about modern Australia and his legacy?

Performed by David Helliwell
