Martin Brown has created a series of images for the Royal Court’s production of Playing the Victim, which opens at the Edinburgh Fringe in August. Brown’s illustrations will be applied across posters, leaflets and the jacket of the play’s script. A series of the murder scene silhouettes are also planned for the foyer of the Royal Court.
