A Tale Etched in Blood and Hard Black Pencil

Motherwell Concert Hall and Theatre
Following their sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe and Bloody Scotland, Horsehead are touring their crowd-pleasing show. Award winning author Brookmyre is a fan of the show, describing it as “an utterly brilliant adaptation”. Synopsis:- When a double murder reunites the classmates of St Elizabeth’s Primary, scores are settled, debts repaid and alliances forged. Twenty years have passed but will those bonds still hold fast? In this hilarious Scottish black comedy, Horsehead Theatre take a nostalgic look at school days, filled with psycho teachers, class jokers and playground feuds. All set to a cracking 70/80s soundtrack! Warning- this play contains very strong language and scenes of a sexual nature. Suitable for 14yr+ only.
