Sleuth

SLEUTH OPENS THURSDAY FEB 8th

A battle of wits between an older man and his wife’s lover opens at the Studio Theatre in February.

Sleuth follows Andrew Wyke’s plan to lure his wife Marguerite’s paramour into a trap and the battle of wits that results. It’s an ingenious story with more twists and turns than a country road.

Andrew invites the younger man, Milo Tindle, to his house, and it soon becomes clear why he is there and that both men know about the affair.

Andrew doubts the younger man has enough money to be able to afford his wife’s expected lifestyle. He also has a solution to the problem: stage a robbery.

“The dialogue is witty, the energy is electric, and the plot is the ultimate game of cat and mouse,” says director Jane Stott.

David Bird plays Andrew. Patrick Bugby takes the role of Milo.
