Itís a brilliant situation that Tom Murray sets up
in this new Rowan Tree play, full of possibilities for debate around
issues of crime, punishment, sin and redemption... Offers an
unusually intense theatrical experience to audiences.
Drama that stays with you long after curtain falls...
One of the most compelling pieces of theatre that I have seen in a
long time... It was thrilling. The acting by Hart and Young was so
intense that you actually forget you are watching a play. You wonít
get much better entertainment in the Borders for a long time.
With Lesley Hart as 'Emma' and Jordan Young as 'Robert'.
Lesley's stage work includes Future Proof a 2011 Edinburgh Fringe first at the
Traverse. Other work includes: I Was a Beautiful Day,
Shimmer and Outlying Islands. Film and Television work include
Casualty, Fast Romance and Taggart.
Jordan's stage work includes Black Watch and Gagarin Way. TV work
includes Rab C Nesbitt and Legit.
Directed by John Carnegie. Scenery and Costumes designed by Gregory Smith.
The show opens with a preview at Bowhill Theatre on Friday 30th September 2011 and then tours throughout the Borders.

Tense, passionate, edge-of-the-seat theatre, Tom
Murray's involving drama was joint winner of the inaugural Rowan Tree
Playwrighting Competition. Having previously presented a rapturously
received workshop version of the script in its Play and a Platter
season at the Eastgate Theatre, the company is proud to bring it to
full fruition in this production.
John Carnegie directed the workshop version of Sins of the Father for Rowan Tree, for whom he has also directed Fredric Mohr's Barry and his own Hermiston and Confessions of a Justified Sinner.DATES/VENUES
