Lizzie Manwaring director of the play “Bible John” (last shown at Edinburgh Festival). Lizzie talks about this dark unsolved case featuring women who went out for a good night out dancing, which ended in horror. Set in Scotland in the late 1960 the play is partly a retelling of one of Scotland’s darkest unsolved crimes, and partly an interrogation into the ethics of true crime as entertainment, Bible John is a riotous, furious, joyful exploration into violence and gender.
