After we found your third victim, we saw your pattern.

...So desperate to make your mark, that you might just stare and stare till you see what you want to see...You’ve got nothing. Nothing!

ABOUT THIS SHOW

This is the first stage play from celebrated mystery writer Ian Rankin.

It’s been 25 years since Alfred Chalmers was convicted of the gruesome murder of four young women in Edinburgh. Isobel McArthur, Scotland’s first Chief Constable, was responsible for putting him behind bars, but the case has haunted her ever since.

Now, with retirement approaching, McArthur decides the time has come for answers. To uncover the truth, she revisits the case and interviews Chalmers for the first time in decades. But her decision rips opens old wounds and McArthur is soon caught up in a web of corruption, psychological mind-games and deceit that threatens not only her own life, but those of her fellow officers and even her own daughter.

Tense, gritty and hard-hitting, Dark Road is the first ever stage play from bestselling crime writer Ian Rankin, co-written by the Royal Lyceum’s Artistic Director Mark Thomson.
