A Tale Etched in Blood and Hard Black Pencil


A Tale Etched in Blood and Hard Black Pencil

A Tale Etched In Blood And Hard Black Pencil - When a double M**der reunites the classmates of St Elizabeth’s Primary School, scores are settled, debts repaid and alliances forged. Twenty years have passed but will those bonds still hold fast?

In this hilarious Scottish black comedy, Horsehead Theatre takes a nostalgic look at school days, filled with psycho teachers, class jokers and playground feuds. All set to a cracking 70s/80s soundtrack!
