Radio Rebus Star Brings Detective To Life On Cardiff Stage!

The UK tour of Rebus: Long Shadows comes to Cardiff’s New Theatre from 5 – 9 February. The new production is written exclusively for the stage by author of the original novels, Ian Rankin and playwright Rona Munro.

Ron Donachie plays John Rebus and is no stranger to the role having created it for all the BBC Radio dramatisations of the Rebus novels. He also played Deputy Chief Inspector Gunner in the Rebus TV series and Ser Roderick Cassell in Game of Thrones. He’s joined on stage by Dani Heron (Angela), Eleanor House (Heather/Maggie), Neil McKinven (Mordaunt), John Stahl (Big Ger Cafferty) and Cathy Tyson (Siobhan Clarke).

In Rebus: Long Shadows, Detective Inspector John Rebus is retired but the shadows of his former life still follow him through the streets of Edinburgh. Whisky helped but now he’s denying himself that pleasure. But when the daughter of a murder victim appears outside his flat, he’s back on the case and off the wagon.

  • Rebus: Long Shadows plays at Cardiff’s New Theatre from Tuesday 5 until Saturday 9 February 2019. Tickets are available from the Box Office on (029) 2087 8889 and
