David Edgar has vividly brought Julian Barnes’ semi-fictional novel to life in a new stage adaptation more than 100 years after it was written.
It centres on Birmingham solicitor George Edalji, a black man convicted for a crime he claims he did not commit.
Desperate to prove his innocence, he recruits the help of expert crime writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Arthur & George raises questions about guilt and innocence, identity, nationality and race.
Arthur & George is on at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre until 10 April. Tickets £10–£32
