A sizzling thriller, like its predecessor, SLEUTH. Shaffer examines the very nature of murder, the relationship between murderer and victim.

Murderer, like it's predecessor Sleuth, is another of Anthony Shaffer's sizzling thrillers. Opening with one of the most truly horrifying scenes ever devised for the stage, the play unfolds upon an incredulous and mesmerized audience. Constantly shifting, twisting, beguiling and witty, it is a brilliantly compelling drama, forever shunning the obvious and culminating in a stunning and terrifying climax.
