At the Kranzberg Black Box Theater, 501 N. Grand Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63103 from October 20 to November 5, 2023.

Horowitz is known for his novels (including The Alex Rider series, Magpie Murders and many more) and his TV work (Foyle’s War, Midsomer Murders etc.)  This is his only full-length play.  Set in an asylum for the criminally insane, a writer of “true crime” paperbacks is trying to get an interview with a notorious mass murderer but nothing is as it seems. “A dazzling thriller and a jet-black comedy that twists its way towards a shocking conclusion.”
