THE NEW STORY EXCLUSIVELY ON STAGE
The world première of
Rebus: Long Shadows
By Ian Rankin adapted by Rona Munro
Detective Inspector John Rebus is retired but the shadows of his former life still follow him through the streets of Edinburgh. Whisky helped but now he's denying himself that pleasure. But when the daughter of a murder victim appears outside his flat, he's back on the case and off the wagon…
Ian Rankin’s Rebus novels have dominated the detective fiction market with the ensuing television and radio series ensuring the detective’s legendary status. Now, alongside award-winning playwright Rona Munro, Ian Rankin is bringing his beloved creation to the stage for the very first time.
In the role of John Rebus, the cast is led by Charles Lawson best known to TV audiences as the iconic character of Jim McDonald in Coronation Street, which he has played since 1989. The cast also includes Golden Globe and BAFTA nominated actress Cathy Tyson who starred opposite Bob Hoskins in the iconic film Mona Lisa and appeared in the hit TV series Band of Gold as Siobhan Clarke and theatre and TV stalwart John Stahl, best known for playing Richard Karstark in Game of Thrones, as Big Ger Cafferty.
‘Rankin is a master storyteller’
‘Britain's No.1 crime writer’
'Rebus is an outstanding creation'
‘Worthy of Agatha Christie at her best’
'Pacy, engaging, smart, ingenious, excellently riddled and raddled - what's not to like about Rebus?'
