After being postponed because of Covid cases in the company, The Scent of Roses with client Leah Byrne is now opening on 5th March and runs until 19th March.
A Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh production.
“You would be surprised how a simple thing like locking your husband up in the same room as you, makes you aware of something. Alive.”
A fiction that speaks the truth about the lies we tell, and what we choose to believe.
The Scent of Roses begins with a wife who decides to take her husband hostage to finally have an honest conversation.
This simple, transgressive act of demanding a straight answer sparks a chain of conversations, interrogations, obfuscations and revelations as a circle of connected lives try to work out what is real and find someone they can trust in a post-truth world.
The Scent of Roses is a dark, funny, new play about truths, lies and how we tell them from leading Scottish playwright and director Zinnie Harris.
