“No Smoke” is a new full-length play by Colin Ward.

No Smoke


Written by Colin Ward, a story about the perceptions and judgements of truth at the hands of an uncomfortable relationship between the law, the media, and society.

DS Ellen Cross is forced to revisit a child abuse investigation which failed to result in a conviction years ago. Is the same suspect on the hunt again? When a local boy appears to become his new prey, connections to the previous case begin to point towards some darker secrets lurking in the shadows. Investigating the case off duty, and against all advice, Cross must avoid triggering vigilante action from the boy’s emotionally fragile father as she tries to find justice for a family torn apart by tragedy.

“It’s not what you see, but how you see it that matters”.
