"SLEUTH" AT APOLLO FROM 2ND JULY 02

Booking has now opened for Anthony Shaffer's modern classic thriller Sleuth, at the Apollo Theatre.

The play opens 10th July 02, following previews from 2nd Jul 02 and taking bookings to 28th Sep 02.

Directed by Elijah Moshinsky, Sleuth features Peter Bowles, Gary O'brien, Seamus Dobony, James Forge and Matthew Knott

It is designed by Paul Farnsworth, with lighting by Nick Richings.

Peter Bowles' West End credits include "In Praise of Love" at the Apollo in 1995; "Present Laughter" at the Aldwych & Wyndham's in 1996; "School For Wives" at the Piccadilly & Comedy in 1997, "Major Barbara" & "The Misanthrope" at the Piccadilly in 1998; 'The Beau' and 'The Royal Family' at the Haymarket in 2001.

Sleuth was first presented in the West End and on Broadway in 1970. It ran for 8 years in London and 4 years in New York.

A devious, middle aged thriller writer invites an innocent young man to his secluded country home for a talk over drinks. But this is no cosy fireside chat and the two men embark on a series of life and death games within games. In the ensuing mayhem the damp ridden Manor House becomes a prison with only one way out. It's the rules of terror and not tennis that dominate the genteel country setting. This is a thriller about thrillers: a dark psychological drama and study of sexual conflict and jealously that goes beyond the bounds of a whodunnit.

This production is currently playing at the Theatre Royal, Windsor to 29th June 02 prior to the West End)
