“Ronan O’Donnell writes in muscular, imagistic language that throws a light on the underclasses in Leith today.” - British Theatre Guide
“A powerfully atmospheric and bleakly comic piece of theatre.” - The Herald Scotland
An uproarious underworld whodunit, Ronan O’Donnell’s single-hander reworks the hardboiled crime thriller for our times.
A suspicious death at the workplace and loner security guard Nick Prentice is hauled in for interrogation. The Inspector thinks he’s got his man, as Nick’s seedy wee “stories” seem to nail him to the crime. Is he complicit in the death of two-bit shoplifter Gary Glover? Will Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson come to his rescue?
Ronan O'Donnell is a playwright based in Scotland whose work has been staged by the Traverse Theatre, LLT and Arches/Theatre of Imagination, amongst others.
