The village has lied. William has lied. It is not because I am undeserving. Not because I am young and they are old. God has given them nothing. I know this now.’

A dream-play, a thriller, an old-fashioned love triangle meld in this unsettling tale about the constraints and liberating possibilities of language, and a journey from ignorance to knowledge in a nameless young peasant woman.

A modern Scottish classic, David Harrower’s intense rural drama was an immediate critical hit when it was first staged at the Traverse Theatre in 1995, heralding the arrival of a stunning new talent. It is the most performed modern Scottish play internationally and has been staged in twenty-five countries across the globe.
