"Ingenious skulduggery replete with skillful suspense and inventive tricks." (The New York Post)
The ultimate game of cat-and-mouse is played out in a cosy English country house owned by celebrated mystery writer, Andrew Wyke. Invited guest Milo Tindle, a young rival who shares not only Wyke's love of the game but also his wife, has come to lay claim. Revenge is devised and murders plotted as the two plan the ultimate whodunnit. Sleuth has twists and turns which are both breathtakingly audacious and fiendishly cunning; a perfect mix of suspense and excitement and a brilliant parody of the Agatha Christie country-house thriller.
The play will be directed by Richard Parish and designed by David Hemsley-Brown with lighting and sound by Alex Lyon.
It will feature Lighted Fools' regulars Nick Lund and David Webb
This will be David’s twenty-fourth outing with the Company. His most recent appearances were in No Man's Land and the one-man show Morecambe when he gave a highly acclaimed performance as Eric Morecambe. His versatility as an actor has been witnessed in many other memorable performances for the Fools in plays such as Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell, Stones in His Pockets, Not About Heroes, A Number, Moonlight and Magnolias, Two, Neville’s Island and Art.
Nick will be making his eleventh appearance with Lighted Fools. The first was in 2009, when he gave a memorable performance as First World War poet, Wilfred Owen in Not About Heroes. He has followed this with appearances in Waiting for Godot, Art, Neville's Island, The Old Country, Quartermaine's Terms, The Homecoming, and most recently, Taken at Midnight, in which he gave a harrowing performance as Hans Litten, On Golden Pond and No Man's Land.
David and Nick will be joined by Philip Farrar, Harold Newman and Roger Purnell who will all be making their Lighted Fools' debuts.
