Recipient of Pleasance's Charlie Hartill Theatre Reserve 2019, Bible John uses a real, unsolved series of murders that occurred in Glasgow at the Barrowlands Ballroom in the late 60s to interrogate the current cult of true crime and notions of victimhood. Poor Michelle (Samuel French New Play Award 2017) present a riotous, furious, joyful exploration of violence and gender, looking at one of Scotland’s darkest mysteries.
In 1969, three women were murdered by an Old Testament-quoting serial killer, nicknamed Bible John. He has never officially been caught. Now, four women bound by their obsession with true crime immerse themselves in the world of Bible John and his victims in an attempt to solve the case, restore justice for the victims and provide a conclusion to a story that has remained unfinished for fifty years.
