The Ensemble Theatre play reading series is a unique opportunity for audiences to experience readings of new plays and classics being considered for production in future seasons. Our play readings give theatregoers the chance to be part of a creative discussion with the actors, director and in the case of new work, the writer.
In a bleak, remote town, a small child is murdered. Suspicion falls on 9-year-old Lizzie. Convinced her daughter is guilty, Lizzie's young mother must make the torturous choice between ignoring her intuition and presenting Lizzie to the police. Lizzie is not the only one who is changed forever by the act. The adults around her, bewildered and full of denial, find their accepted beliefs crumbling around them in a play which explores the sources of violence and its legacy.
