Sleuth is set in a Wiltshire manor house belonging to Andrew Wyke who is, himself, a successful mystery writer.
The home reflects Wyke’s obsession with the inventions and deceptions of fiction and his fascination with games and game-playing. He lures his wife’s lover, Tindle, into the house and convinces him to stage a robbery of her jewelry, a proposal that sets off a chain of events that leaves the audience trying to decipher where Wyke’s imagination ends and reality begins.
Written by Tony-award winning British playwrite Anthony Shaffer in 1970 and later transferred into a successful film directed by Kenneth Branagh (starring Michael Caine) in 2007, this new production stars Simon MacCorkindale, best known for his role as Consultant Harry Harper in Casualty. Joining him on stage is film and television star Michael Praed, who is well remembered as the original Robin of Sherwood, and whose roles on American television include Dynasty and The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne.
Alive with nail biting anticipation this psychological thriller promises to baffle even the most proficient sleuth!
