An uproarious underworld whodunit, Ronan O’Donnell’s single-hander reworks the hardboiled crime thriller for our times.

A suspicious death at the workplace and loner security guard Nick Prentice is hauled in for interrogation. The Inspector thinks he’s got his man, as Nick’s seedy wee ‘stories’ seem to nail him to the crime. Is he complicit in the death of two-bit shoplifter Gary Glover? Will Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson come to his rescue?

Ronan O’Donnell’s play Angels was first performed at Òran Mór, Glasgow, in 2011.
