The Witness

By Vivienne Franzmann. A young Rwandan-born woman discovers a long-buried secret which shatters her feelings for her adopted father.

Captured in an iconic award-winning shot, Alex was rescued from Rwanda and adopted by the man behind the lens. Back from university and returning to the family home, the relationship between father and daughter cracks and then shatters as a long-hidden secret is slowly exposed. Based on the Royal Court Theatre production, this is a powerful and moving drama of modern morality.
