Lullabies of Broadmoor – The Murder Club: Fringe Review

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Set in the midst of Britain’s genocidal war in Iraq, Steve Hennessy’s chilling story of murder, madness and redemption is a powerful piece of theatre. Exploring morality and mentality through strong acting performances and a well-written script, it follows the lives of two men committed to Broadmoor psychiatric hospital after engaging in acts of murder. A twisted tale of deceit and deception unfolds as the men plan an evening of entertainment. With a combination of live-action and flashbacks, we learn of the men’s past and actions which led them to the hospital, allowing us to explore their characters in considerable detail. With impeccable acting and a strong plot, this is a truly enjoyable production.

C, 4 – 20 Aug (Alternate Dates) 24 26 27, times vary, £6.50 – £10.50, fpp277.
