Pebbles would crack against my window in the pitch of the night 

I’d lean out and say –

What do you want Tommy MacLeish, you black eyed monster? 

And he’d say...



A chance meeting between two children on the streets of Edinburgh leads to a terrible reckoning, leaving Jenny and Tommy forever bound together by blood and fate. Brutal and beautiful, Hywel John's remarkable new play glimmers and cuts like a jewel, fusing raw epic romance with guttural urban poetry to tell the story of a secret generational legacy of love, violence and fury.


Hywel John is the Welsh writer of Pieces (★★★★, The Guardian) and Rose (★★★★, The Telegraph, The Times and The Evening Standard). 


‘A striking new work’

★★★★, The Stage
