7:84 was a Scottish left-wing agitprop theatre group. The name comes from a statistic, published in the Economist in 1966, that 7% of the population of the UK owned 84% of the state's wealth. The group was originally founded by playwright John McGrath in 1971, and operated throughout Great Britain. In 1973, it split into 7:84 (England) and 7:84 (Scotland).
