The Witness

By Vivienne Franzmann

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

A dark and penetrating thriller of modern morals.

Captured in an award-winning shot, Alex was rescued from Rwanda and adopted by the man behind the lens. Years later, she's back from university, returning to the Hampstead home in which she was raised. As a long-hidden secret is exposed, the distance between father and daughter stretches taut.

Vivienne Franzmann's play The Witness was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, London, in June 2012.
