About this show

A stranger in a seedy London bar hands a man a phone number. He calls it. An hour later, he's in a woman's apartment listening to an astonishing story: murder, war crimes, love. He can't imagine what she's been through. So he changes it. Part mystery, part ethical dilemma, critically-acclaimed novelist Michael Redhill's Goodness is an intricate knot of flashbacks and storytelling by a six-person cast. The elegant production, directed by Ross Manson, delicately interweaves South African and Central European folk music as laments from around the world. Goodness is the winner of both the 2006 Carol Tambor's Best of Edinburgh Award, the top honor at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and a Scotsman Fringe First award (the oldest award at the Fringe).
