West End Thriller 'Mindgame' Comes to Yorkshire Theatres main

Following an acclaimed season in London’s West End the UK tour of Mindgame by Anthony Horowitz has been extended to include dates at Wakefield Theatre Royal.

Mindgame is a mind bending psychological thriller from Horowitz, the creator of Foyles War.

When Mark Styler, a writer of glossy ‘true crime’ paperbacks, tries to get an interview with Easterman, a notorious serial killer, he has no idea what he’s walking into. First he has to get past Dr Farquhar, the quixotic head of Fairfields – the asylum where Easterman is kept. But soon he discovers that nothing is what it seems. Who is the mysterious Borson? Where did he get the meat in the fridge? And why isn’t the skeleton in the closet?
