Rebus: Long Shadows – on tour in 2019

After the hugely successful string of performances in autumn 2018, the new Rebus play LONG SHADOWS is touring again in early 2019! Written alongside the award-winning playwright Rona Munro, Ian Rankin brings his beloved creation to the stage for the very first time.

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. But when the daughter of a murder victim appears outside his flat, he’s back on the case and off the wagon…

Rebus will need help from his ex-colleagues but one of them is already looking for him. DI Siobhan Clarke was Rebus’ greatest ally on the force but is worried that his past actions may stop them finally convicting a dangerous killer. Soon Rebus is caught between two cases and can only turn to one person to help him – the man he spent his career trying to arrest.  

Ron Donachie joins the cast for 2019 as John Rebus. He is no stranger to the role having played the title role in all the BBC Radio dramatisations of the Rebus novels. He also played Deputy Chief Inspector Gunner in the Rebus TV series and Ser Roderick Cassell in Game of Thrones.

Full dates and ticket details are below, and the play book is also available now, featuring an introduction from Ian Rankin, a Q&A between writers Ian and Rona Munro, an interview with the director, and behind-the-scenes production materials,
