Performance Notes

× Sometimes theatre can be a way to create a safe space for important conversations about complicated subjects.

One evening, ten-year-old Rhona goes missing. Her mother, Nancy, retreats into a state of frozen hope. Agnetha, an American academic, comes to England to research a thesis: “Serial Killing—A Forgivable Act?”. Then there’s Ralph, a loner who’s looking for some distraction. Drawn together by horrific circumstances, these three embark on a long, dark journey which finally curves upward into the light.

Angry, humane, and compassionate, this extraordinary play entwines the lives of a murderer, the mother of one of his victims, and his psychologist to explore our capacity for forgiveness, remorse, and change after an act that seems to rule them out entirely.

Audience advisory: mature themes

Running time is approximately 1 hour 30 minutes, no intermission

A staged reading is a thoroughly enjoyable way to experience a play. With no sets and costumes, engage your imagination to create the play in your own mind while hearing it read by talented actors.

A Peninsula Productions production | Written by Bryony Lavery | Directed by Guy Fauchon
