Description

Award-winning production. Could you ever forgive the stranger who killed your son? In an act of senseless, momentary madness, a young man is stabbed by a woman, high on drugs. A family left bereft, their lives forever consumed by pain. A young woman languishes in prison for a crime she barely recalls. Can anything save them? Can anything get them through the darkness? Could meeting the killer somehow help them make sense of it all? The first step on a very long road. 'I was totally amazed... the acting was superb... it was moving' (Vi Donovan MBE).

Excellent. A tough subject matter to bring to the stage rendered very accessible through a great script and extremely strong performances - tightly directed and very well acted. A powerful play in an intimate setting - an absolute Fringe highlight. Superb.

An inspired look into the legacy of a murder and the long road towards understanding. Fascinating!! Wonderful acting by a small ensemble cast. Very worth seeing!

Delyth Smith 29 days ago

Searingly powerful, thought-provoking production that explores the complexities of restorative justice in the aftermath of a violent crime. A tight, spartan production, the acting was intense and brilliant: you absolutely felt what it would be like to be in that situation. Must see!

Heather Hewitt 29 days ago

Powerful, moving, gripping drama with thought-provoking content and great performances from all five cast members. A must-see at this year's Fringe.
