An image of a man in a suit looking at anther man who has thrown lots of papers up into the air


Todd Boyce (Coronation Street's notorious baddie, Stephen Reid) and Neil McDermott (EastEnders, The Royal) star in Anthony Shaffer's masterpiece, directed by award winning Rachel Kavanaugh (The RSC/Chichester Festival Theatre)

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

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

One of the greatest ever stage thrillers makes its much-anticipated return for an extraordinary revival. 

Sleuth is one of the greatest ever stage thrillers and played for a total of 12 years in London and New York, winning the Tony Award for Best Play and inspiring the hugely successful film starring Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine.
