Anthony Horowitz‘s mind-bending psychological thriller Mindgame returns to the West End, for the first time since 2000, for a strictly limited three-week season to 2 June 2018, following a UK tour. Who doesn’t love a good thriller?!
Mark Styler, a writer of glossy ‘true crime’ paperbacks, has no idea what he’s walking into when he tries to get an interview with Easterman, a notorious serial killer. First, he has to get past Dr Farquhar, the quixotic head of Fairfields – the asylum where Easterman is kept.
But soon he discovers that nothing is what it seems. Who is the mysterious Borson? Where did he get the meat in the fridge? And why isn’t the skeleton in the closet?
“A cracking thriller with hints & ambiguities, twists & turns from one end to the other” – Nottingham Post
“The guessing game is still on as the final curtain falls… compelling, intriguing & chilling” – Derbyshire Times
