Every purchase supports the work of the National Theatre


by Martin Murphy

Tired of her highly paid sales job, Rachel makes a move into social work only to find herself involved in a controversial case bringing her into the media's unforgiving gaze. Villain tells the story of a woman who wants to make a difference, a tragedy of trying to help innocent victims but ending up looking like the villain.

Villain premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016, to critical acclaim. This edition was published to coincide with the first revival at the King's Head Theatre, London, in February 2017.
