Todd Boyce (Coronation Street’s notorious baddie, Stephen Reid) stars in Anthony Shaffer’s masterpiece with Neil McDermott (EastEnders) directed by the award winning Rachel Kavanaugh (The RSC, Chichester Festival Theatre)

A young man arrives at the impressive home of a famous mystery writer (Boyce), only to be unwittingly drawn into a tangled web of intrigue and gamesmanship, where nothing is quite as it seems...

This dark psychological ‘thriller about thrillers’ makes for an intriguing study of human conflict, jealousy and manipulation. Proving to be far more than a ‘whodunit’, it promises to baffle even the most proficient sleuth!

Sleuth is one of the greatest ever stage thrillers and played for a total of 12 years in both London and New York. Winning the Tony Award for Best Play it also became the inspiration for the hugely successful film starring Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine.

“Shaffer’s sublime thriller is a masterpiece of plots... cracking entertainment that will appeal to everyone” The Advertiser
