THE SCENT OF ROSES
by Zinnie Harris
Directed by Zinnie Harris
“You would be surprised how a simple thing like locking your husband up in the same room as you, makes you aware of something. Alive.”
A fiction that speaks the truth about the lies we tell, and what we choose to believe.
The Scent of Roses begins with a wife who decides to take her husband hostage to finally have an honest conversation.
This simple, transgressive act of demanding a straight answer sparks a chain of conversations, interrogations, obfuscations and revelations as a circle of connected lives try to work out what is real and find someone they can trust in a post-truth world.
The Scent of Roses is a dark, funny, new play about truths, lies and how we tell them from leading Scottish playwright and director Zinnie Harris, whose recent plays have been commissioned and produced by the Royal Court Theatre, Royal National Theatre, the National Theatre of Scotland and the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Renowned for bringing new perspectives to classic stories, her acclaimed versions of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, Ionescu’s Rhinoceros, Webster’s The Duchess of Malfi and the Greek classic The Orestia (in her trilogy This Restless House) have all played on the Lyceum stage.
