Your Turn to Clean the Stair & Fugue

By Rona Munro

Paperback £10.99£8.79

Two plays, from the award-winning author of Iron.

Your Turn to Clean the Stair is a comically sinister study of the tensions in an Edinburgh tenement.

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.

Fugue is a psychological horror story about a woman suffering a mental breakdown.

Kay, a 24-year-old secretary, encounters her alter ego as she suffers an emotional breakdown in the Grampian Hills.

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