Stalking the Boeyman at the Southwark Playhouse

Stalking the Bogeyman

Based on an extraordinary true story, Stalking the Bogeyman follows renowned journalist David Holthouse’s secret plot to murder the man who raped him when he was seven years old, and highlights the complexities of childhood sexual assault. The play is based on an article published in 2004 by Holthouse and later adapted into a story for the popular US radio programme ‘ThisAmerican Life.’
