The Revenant


  • Playwright

    Patrick McCabe 

  • Synopsis

    The Revenant is a person who has returned, especially from the dead. He might have been a character bestriding John Hinde’s sixties photographic heaven. But now he moves cautiously - as if pursued, hunted. Only one thing remains constant: the grey colour of the tombstone they’ve erected over his name. And over those whose voices once lit up the little town, which no longer exists.
