Traverse Theatre Company in association with National Theatre of Scotland
I know my boy. I’d know if something had happened to him.
Maddy and Rory are devoted parents to 3-year-old Joshua, committed to keeping him happy and safe. But when an everyday visit to a supermarket café turns into a far more troubling incident, their trust even in those closest to them is shattered. Fear and doubt consume them, until they reach a savage breaking point.
Gut is a taut psychological thriller that explores who we can trust with our children. And whether it’s more dangerous not to trust at all.
Written by Fringe First award-winning playwright Frances Poet (Adam), Gut was shortlisted for the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, and is directed by award-winning Traverse Associate Director Zinnie Harris.
