A Tale Etched in Blood and Hard Black Pencil


A Tale Etched in Blood and Hard Black Pencil
Horsehead Theatre
Saturday 18th May
£12 adult, £10 concession

*Warning – this play contains very strong language and scenes of a sexual nature.  Suitable for age 14yrs+ only.*

A TALE ETCHED IN BLOOD AND HARD BLACK PENCIL - when a double murder reunites the classmates of St Elizabeth’s Primary School, scores are settled, debts are repaid and alliances forged.  Twenty years have passed, but will those bonds still hold fast?  

In this hilarious Scottish black comedy, Horsehead Theatre takes a nostalgic look at school days filled with psycho teachers, class jokers and playground feuds - all set to a cracking 70s/80s soundtrack!

Following their 2017 sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe and at Bloody Scotland, the international Crime Writing Festival, Horsehead Theatre are touring award-winning Chris Brookmyre’s A Tale Etched In Blood And Hard Black Pencil in 2019… Brookmyre is a fan of Horsehead’s show, calling it an “utterly brilliant adaptation”.
