About Book

A man is banished in a soldier's hearing. His daughter is left to wander. In a rash moment, Beatriz offers to take the child back to her father, and so starts an unimaginable journey across continents and in and out of war zones. But in their need to survive, the woman and the child transform in ways that become irreversible.

The Wheel by Zinnie Harris premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in August 2011 in a production by the National Theatre of Scotland.

Zinnie Harris is a playwright and screenwriter, her work includes the multi-award-winning play Further than the Furthest Thing, and Spooks.

'A glorious luminosity of spirit...really rather special.'
