More Information on Sleuth
The ultimate game of cat and mouse, Sleuth is a Tony award‑winning thriller by Anthony Shaffer where nothing is quite as it seems. Andrew Wyke is a rich and successful mystery writer whose obsession with playing games is in danger of losing him everything. Luring his wife’s lover Milo to his country pile, Andrew persuades him to take part in a specially created challenge.
Before long their power struggle descends into a sinister and deadly duel of wits, where nothing is off limits. Investigating a Missing Person, Inspector Doppler attempts to untangle fact from fiction, deception from truth and murderer from victim.
In Sleuth, Shaffer creates a great contemporary classic of wit, suspense and ingenuity.
Sleuth is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD
