Is Dark Road by Ian Rankin and Mark Thomson
a Did-he-do-it? not a Who-done-it?
It’s been twenty-five years since Alfred Chalmers was convicted of the gruesome murder of four young women in Edinburgh. Isobel McArthur, Scotland’s first Chief Superintendent, was the woman responsible for putting him behind bars but the case has haunted her ever since.
Now, with retirement approaching, McArthur decides the time has come for answers. To uncover the truth, she revisits the case and interviews Chalmers for the first time in decades. But her decision rips open old wounds and McArthur is soon caught up in a web of corruption, psychological mind-games and deceit that threatens not only her life, but those of her fellow officers and even her own daughter.
Tense, gritty and hard-hitting, Dark Road is the first ever stage play from bestselling crime writer Ian Rankin, co-written by the Royal Lyceum’s Artistic Director Mark Thomson.
The play will be performed on the 26th, 27th and 28th April 2018 at Veryan Parish Hall.
Tickets will be available from the beginning of April from Veryan and Portloe General Stores or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel. 01872 501974

The only thing we don't do is Pantomime, we leave that to our friends at St. Mawes and Tregony. We usually perform three plays a year. We are always looking for new acting members (Particularly 18 to 40) and anyone else who wants to be involved in local theatre.
