Reiver – Tales From The Border

Various Locations

16 Nov 2022 - 01 Dec 2022

Delivered by Elysium Theatre Company

REIVER – TALES FROM THE BORDERS by Steve Byron – The Reivers: lawless families who terrorised the Anglo-Scottish borders for four hundred years until King James I broke their power.

Northumberland-born playwright Steve Byron weaves three powerful stories into an evening of gripping drama: an innocent farmer, a southern lawman exiled to the North and a young Scots woman sold into slavery take a stand against the terror of the Reivers. Will honour and goodness triumph over evil, or will evil rule the land?
