Lion in the Streets by Judith Thompson
Seventeen years ago, Isobel was murdered at the tender age of nine. Now she finds herself back in her previous life as a ghost, searching for the person responsible for her untimely death. But this time she’s powerful, having the ability to watch over the living, observe them, and sometimes interact with them. Of special interest are Isobel’s former neighbours, whom she begins to suffer along with during their dark private experiences. Will she finally get the peace she’s been yearning for? One of Judith Thompson’s most enduring plays, Lion in the Streets looks at the inner turmoil of ordinary people and the ways in which they cope.
