By Ian Rankin. Adapted by Rona Munro

At King’s Theatre Edinburgh
Monday 8 to Saturday 13 October 2018

On the wagon and on the case again, auld reeking skeletons from the past are about to rattle the inner-troubled cage of the city weary shamus.

In a last minute announcement Rebus: Long Shadows will now be directed by Robin Lefevre, taking the place of Roxana Silbert who has had to withdraw due to unforeseen circumstances.

Rebus: Long Shadows is a brand-new Rebus story written exclusively for the stage by author of the original novels, Ian Rankin and playwright Rona Munro which premières at Birmingham Repertory Theatre on Thursday 20 September and will then on UK tour. We have reason to believe that it’s a fair-cop that Mr Rankin himself will be at the Edinburgh opening night…

Detective Inspector John Rebus is retired but the shadows of his former life still follow him through the streets of Edinburgh. Whisky helped but now he’s denying himself that pleasure. When the daughter of a murder victim appears outside his flat, he’s back on the case and off the wagon.

A Daniel Schumann & Birmingham Rep production.
