SUMMARY

Christie in Love is a dark and disturbing journey into the mind of Britain’s most notorious single serial killer of the 20thcentury. John Reginald Halliday Christie strangled eight women, including his wife and a baby. He went on to entrap an innocent man, who was mistakenly hung as a result of Christie’s callous handiwork.

Brenton remains one of Britain's most controversial dramatists: "like Genet, [Brenton] feels for the outcast...But he's less sentimentally involved with his criminals, clearer about his ultimate strategy to show the unreality of straight lines in a curved universe, of the roles society forces on us." (Observer)

Substance & Shadow Theatre continue with their trademark style of intimate, minimalist theatre, inviting you to experience the chilling and brutal exploration of a murderous mind at extremely close range.
