SYNOPSIS


Anthony Shaffer’s classic Tony Award winning thriller has been a favourite since 1970 with audiences and critics alike and was adapted for the screen twice, in 1972, starring Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine and again in 2007, directed by Kenneth Branagh, starring Michael Caine and Jude Law.

The ingeniously twisted plot is set in a cosy English country house owned by celebrated mystery writer, Andrew Wyke. The writer’s home reflects his obsession with the inventions and deceptions of fiction and his fascination with games and game-playing. He lures his wife’s lover, Milo Tindle, to the house under the pretence of welcoming Tindle’s taking her off his hands. Wyke makes a proposal the young, penniless lover can’t resist which sets off a chain of audacious bluffs and double bluffs with a chilling outcome.

Clever, intricate…It is good, neat, clean and bloody fun. –The New York Times

A clever and enjoyable piece … full of energy, sophistication and brilliant humour.
