Nominated for FIVE Off West End Awards including Best Director, Best Design and Best Sound.
ActDrop reviewed the 2017 production at this same venue (then called The Tabard Theatre) - read Peter Brown's 4 star review here.
Based on a true story, set in Victorian England, this tense, passion-fuelled thriller tells of serial fraudster, George Love, who encounters a naïve and vulnerable shop-girl, Adelaide Pinchin.
Seduced by his charm and elaborate stories of a life she's never known, Adelaide agrees to run away with him in a secret tryst.
What follows shocks them both as their plans begin to unravel in frightening and unpredictable ways.
What appears at first to be a simple tale of deceit, soon evolves into a riveting thriller with a startling climax which will stay with you long after the curtain comes down.
