Your Turn to Clean the Stair & Fugue

By Rona Munro

Paperback £10.99£8.79

Your Turn to Clean the Stair is a comically sinister study of the tensions in an Edinburgh tenement, from the award-winning author of Iron.

Old Mrs Mackie has always been in charge of her stair, the communal stairwell she shares with inhabitants like tough single-mum Kay and brittle young couple Lisa and Brian. And then there's dodgy Bobby who just gets on everyone's nerves. So when – after avoiding his stair-cleaning duties once again – Bobby's body is found at the bottom of the stairs, the question is not did he fall or was he pushed, but whodunnit?

Rona Munro's play Your Turn to Clean the Stair was first performed at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in April 1992 and subsequently on tour.

Also included in this volume is Fugue, an earlier play from Munro about a young woman and her alter ego.

Fugue was first performed at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in April 1983.
