Reiver—Tales from the Borders

Author(s): Steve Byron
Company: Elysium Theatre Company

A three-person play set during the 1500s, when Reivers ‘raiders’ terrorized the Anglo-Scottish border.

Written by Newcastle-based, Northumberland-born playwright Steve Byron, three interlocking stories—Blackmail, Godforsaken Place and The Widow’s Path—paint a portrait of a world not unlike our own in which corruption and evil force ordinary people to take a stand.

With a North East cast of Micky Cochrane, Steven Stobbs and Karen Traynor as an innocent farmer, an exiled lawman and a young woman sold into slavery who defy the Reivers, Reiver—Tales From The Borders will visit a mixture of historical sites, rural communities and major theatres across the North East and Cumbria.
