Simon Wilkinson - A Game of Death and Chance


Simon Wilkinson is the Lighting Designer for the National Trust of Scotland’s A Game of Death and Chance.

Be thrilled as you step inside this 500-year-old tenement and encounter characters from the past. Hear tales of burning witches, riots, executions and more in this unique immersive and interactive experience. Meet characters including a publican, an investor and a spy who’ll share details with you from Edinburgh’s colourful past as you journey through Gladstone’s Land. You’ll hear tales spanning from the Union of the Crowns in 1603 to the Act of Union in 1707. At this time, Edinburgh was haunted by death and disease but propelled by the hope of a better country. When you’ve heard from each character, you’ll have a choice to make. That choice will result in a different outcome for each character!
