The Shadow of Light

Based upon the life of Madeleine Smith – a middle class Glaswegian woman who scandalised and intrigued all levels of Victorian society when she was tried for the murder of her lover, and then acquitted on a verdict of Not Proven. The play explores the lives behind the façade of respectability and questions the abuse of power, where evil starts and who ultimately is responsible.
