Where The Crow Flies by Lisa Nicoll
Ostracised by the community she lives in, Carrie feels isolated from the world. Her husband is in prison for a crime he says he didn’t commit. Can she prove his innocence? All this seems impossible, until a new neighbour moves in next door. But is the incomer all that she seems?
Based on interviews and stories from women in Blackburn, West Lothian, Where the Crow Flies is a play about starting over, fighting for the truth, gaining trust and getting rid of the labels that are put on us.

The important unsaid issues bubble at the surface and Nicoll resists the urge to give us a big reveal. Instead we get a far more subtle insight into the two characters and their unstable friendship.

The fact that it is based on true stories of women’s lives gathered by Nicoll from communities in West Lothian gives the story a passionate, grounded quality, and offers a real sense of tragedy.
