3 - 7 April 2018 Main House



Tuesday 3 – Saturday 7 April

A world stage premiere from the pen of one of the world’s greatest thriller writers. When Sandor snatched little Joe from the path of a London train, he was quick to make clear the terms of the rescue. “I saved your life,” he told the homeless youngster, “so your life belongs to me now.”

Sandor began to tell him a fairy tale: an ageing prince, a kidnapped princess, a missed rendezvous… But what did this mysterious story have to do with Sandor? Joe only understood his own role – he was a Gallowglass, the servant of a chief…

Starring Paul Opacic (Bad Girls/Emmerdale/Hollyoaks), Richard Walsh (London’s Burning), Karen Drury (Brookside) and Dean Smith (Last Tango in Halifax/Waterloo Road), this classy thriller is brought to you by the producers of The Verdict and A Murder Is Announced.

“Marvellously gripping… tense, compulsive and beautifully written” Sunday Express on the novel.
