They said I was violent. You’re the ‘victim’ – what do you think?

Ten years ago, Bella Soroush’s life was ruined by one of her pupils – Kane McCarthy. She has gradually rebuilt things – new school, new town, new friends – and finally feels at home in the depths of the countryside.

Now Kane is back in her classroom, armed with relics of the past and claiming to want forgiveness.

As the truths they've clung to begin to collapse, teacher and pupil are forced to confront their prejudices and the shared history that has bound them together.

New drama that interrogates social fault-lines in Britain today, and the tension between truth and justice.

“Astonishing performances... Leaves you turning its events over and over long after its characters seem to find equilibrium.”

David Ralf (The Stage)

“It is difficult to suspend one’s disbelief... Fowler’s production papers over the cracks and is excellently acted.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Hyde and Melling apply themselves with gusto... It’s Parvin’s refusal to draw moral conclusions that should be be lauded.”

Time Out (Other reviewers)

“Juggles our sympathies... Both performances are superb... Cries out to have half an hour lopped off it.”
