Bible John

Bible John

Location: Forge - The Vaults, Leake Street

“I kicked myself for missing this Barrowlands’ murders-inspired piece in Edinburgh. From the company once known as Poor Michelle and now calling themselves These Girls.”
“A riotous, furious, joyful exploration of true crime, gender and one of Scotland’s darkest mysteries”


Glasgow, 1969: Three women are murdered by an Old Testament-quoting serial killer, nicknamed Bible John. The case remains unsolved; now, four true crime-obsessed women want to change that.

THESE GIRLS is an award-winning, female led theatre company producing new writing that focuses on the messy, complex, unresolvable questions that womxn face. Our work is defiant, collaborative, funny, and we hope it speaks to as many people as possible about the things that matter to us all.

Formally known as Poor Michelle, THESE GIRLS’ work includes: Bible John (Pleasance Charlie Hartill Theatre Reserve Recipient), Thick Skin (Samuel French New Play Award 2017) and Harry.
