A Play

Book - 2014
Rate this:

An old man in a military uniform and a Santa hat is dumped at the police station. He doesn't speak English, and a lawyer's business card is baited on the meat hook that hangs on his neck. As a lawyer, a police officer and a translator struggle to unravel the truth, they uncover a past that won't stay buried, and a decades-old quest for justice that must be served.

This edition includes a foreword by Louise Arbour, former Supreme Court of Canada justice and former Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, and notes on the Lavinian language created for the play.

Butcher premiered at Alberta Theatre Projects in October 2014.

Praise for Nicolas Billon's Iceland :

'Billon is a masterful storyteller, drawing us into his characters' lives via richly detailed monologues, full of haunting imagery that echoes throughout the play.'
