It’s a win-win situation in Titchfield Festival Theatre’s production of Sleuth, involving a break-in, a ruby necklace and a clown costume.
Running from July 10-13 and 17-20, the play, by Anthony Shaffer, features millionaire mystery writer Andrew Wyke. He invites his wife’s new lover to his country mansion and when young Milo Tindle arrives, Andrew has a proposal for him. But things are not as they seem and Milo quickly becomes entangled in a web of deceit and manipulation.
Director, Hannah Wood, says, ‘I don’t want to give too much away but it’s got explosives, gunshots and stunts galore. The small cast delivers urgent, bordering on maniacal, performances.’
