10th - 15th October 2016


A classic thriller from the 1920's. A dark story of two privileged, bored young men, convinced of their own intellectual superiority, who hatch a plot to commit the perfect murder.


Callously, they involve the family of their victim in the aftermath.


Based on a real-life case in the United States.
