Pebbles would crack against my window in the pitch of the nightI'd lean out and say –What do you want Tommy MacLeish, you black eyed monster?And he'd say...You.
A chance meeting between two children on the streets of Edinburgh leads to a terrible reckoning, leaving Jenny and Tommy forever bound together by blood and fate. Brutal and beautiful, Hywel John's remarkable new play glimmers and cuts like a jewel, fusing raw epic romance with guttural urban poetry to tell the story of a secret generational legacy of love, violence and fury.
