Get Up and Tie Your Fingers, Ann Coburn’s first play, was premiered at the 1995 Borders Festival and had a successful run at the 1996 Edinburgh Festival. It is the achingly sad and ultimately uplifting story of three women coping with death, dealing with guilt, and learning to let their children go.

Safe is a play which taps into the deep, shared roots of childhood in order to explore contemporary parental fears about the safety of their children.

Devil's Ground is the story of an historical act of genocide, told through the personal tragedy of one Reiver family.
