The Suspicions of Mr Whicher

The Suspicions of Mr Whicher

Kate Summerscale’s vivid and gripping bestselling non-fiction thriller is brought to the stage for the first time in this playful adaptation.

Summer 1860, an elegant country house, a young boy is found dead in an outside privy. 

All clues point towards the murderer being a member of the grieving household. 

But which one?

Called to the scene is the most celebrated detective of his day, Jonathan Whicher from Scotland Yard. 

Faced with an inept local police force, a middle-class family ravaged by secrets, and a lack of evidence, will he be able to solve the case?

This original Victorian whodunit becomes a battle of wits between the professional detective and the only one who knows what really happened. 

In this fresh re-telling, fact and fiction bleed into each other, and the Truth becomes something to be fought over.
