Iron told the story of Fay, a woman in prison for the murder of her husband, who receives a visit from her daughter, Josie, whom she hasn’t seen for 15 years. This shatteringly powerful play unravels the lives of both women with scalpel-like precision as Josie struggles to understand the stranger before her and above all to find out what really happened on the night her father was killed.
Directed by Richard Baron, designed by Adrian Rees, lighting design by Kate Bonney and sound design by Jon Beales. Cast: Blythe Duff as Fay, Irene Allan as Josie, Claire Dargo as Sheila, Crawford Logan as George.
Blythe Duff went on to win Best Female Performance for her portrayal of Fay at the 2013 Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland.
