By Rona Munro

A psychological horror story about a woman suffering a mental breakdown, from the award-winning author of Iron.

Rona Munro's play Fugue was first performed at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in April 1983.

Press Quotes

'Set in an isolated Scottish cottage and then a psychiatric ward, the play works both as a traditional horror story and as a psychological study of a woman falling apart'
