The Long Road is a play that hits hard, right from the start.
When a young man is murdered by a stranger in an unprovoked attack, his family fall apart in their struggle to deal with it. We join them at a critical point: the mother begins to wonder whether she should meet the young girl who killed her son, thereby setting in motion a series of events that will lead either to disaster or maybe even to... forgiveness?
Marking 10 years since it first premiered at The Soho Theatre, The Long Road, written by acclaimed playwright Shelagh Stephenson, evolved out of a period of research with prisoners by Synergy Theatre Project in collaboration with The Forgiveness Project, an organisation that attempts to help perpetrators and victims of crime find their way through the turmoil.
“This is an important play that will leave no one unaffected: I cried just reading it. It appears at first glance a grim subject but there’s hope, redemption and even humour.”
