About Book

A man is found lying in the snow at the foot of the Pyrenees. He remembers nothing. He believes he is British. A young woman from the British Consulate is dispatched to confirm his nationality and to try to piece together his identity. When Vivienne, a middle aged woman from Edinburgh arrives, she presents him with a history he doesn't recognise. Is he really who she says he is? As the snow melts on the mountains the man must decide which reality he will enter - Anna's or Vivienne's? Who is he really?

Pyrenees premiered at the Tron Theatre, Glasgow in March 2005 in a co-production between Paines Plough and the Tron Theatre Company, Glasgow, in association with Palace Theatre, Watford.
