A world premiere by Douglas Maxwell
We’re in a small country house in the Highlands of Scotland during the darkest days of World War Two. The house is crumbling, forgotten and hard to find. Lost, right at the end of a lonely peninsula; forest on one side, cliffs and sea on the other.
It’s the perfect location for a secret mission.
As tensions rise to a fever pitch, how far will people go to get what they want?
The Assumption, written by celebrated Scottish playwright, Douglas Maxwell, is a ghostly Gothic thriller, a story of war and love, about a prisoner and a haunted painting. Performed in British Sign Language and English.
This production has been developed for a live audience. It is our hope and belief that current restrictions will be lifted, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Tramway for a live theatre experience.
However, in the event that this is not possible a full refund will be given.
