An adaptation of the Traverse Theatre's production of Zinnie Harris' play.

Set in a nation haunted by its war crimes, a drama dealing with politics, justice and revenge. It asks the question - to make your future, do you have to murder the past?

In the aftermath of a horrific civil conflict, a new country is preparing for the mass execution of its war criminals. Kate knew one of the guilty men for 15 years and never suspected a thing. As the city burns and the new government struggles to look credible to the rest of the world, she gets tragically caught up in their conspiracy.

Turned into an iconic figure, she is asked to decide whether the executions should go ahead or not. But can any answer she gives be the right choice?
