Description - The "Long Road" by Shelagh Stephenson

After a sell-out run earlier this year, this topical and powerful play returns to Soho Theatre. A programme text edition published in conjunction with The Synergy Theatre Project in association with The Forgiveness Project and Soho Theatre, The Long Road runs from 10 - 29 November 2008. 'Mary wants us to talk about the girl that killed our son. I want to wipe her off the face of the earth' In the aftermath of Danny's pointless murder, his family struggles to find meaning and forgiveness. The Long Road evolved out of a period of research with prisoners by Synergy Theatre Project, in collaboration with The Forgiveness Project and award-winning playwright Shelagh Stephenson. Synergy Theatre Project works through theatre with offenders and ex-offenders towards resettlement and rehabilitation whilst placing the wider issues surrounding imprisonment in the public arena. The Forgiveness Project encourages and empowers people to explore the nature of forgiveness and alternatives to revenge. 'It is a rare play that hits the news with such cruel topicality ...Stephenson offers a powerful, illuminating piece of dramatic fiction' Nicholas de Jongh, Evening Standard 'Rare and remarkable ...this is a drama that cries out for attention - and richly rewards it' The Telegraph
