Texas, early evening, the 1980s. A man returns to his old town. But where has he been? And what is he hiding? Ghosts from his past return to haunt him with shattering consequences, shaking each character and changing their lives irreparably. Scapegoat examines the Texan justice system, the idea of original sin, American rape culture and the concept of reformation. Incorporating physical theatre sequences and originally written a cappella bluegrass music, it is a visceral exploration of the fascinating culture of the Deep South.
