A dark psychological ‘thriller about thrillers’ is heading to Cheltenham

A must-see this spring, the Tony Award-winning Best Show, Sleuth, takes to the stage at Cheltenham's Everyman Theatre in April 2024 — promising a psychological thriller that will baffle the most accomplished of detectives.

This ‘whodunnit’ show promises to baffle even the most skilful detectives, when it comes to the Everyman Theatre stage in April 2024.

Considered one of the greatest ever stage thrillers, playing for a total of 12 years in both London and New York, Anthony Shaffer's Sleuth is set to appear at Cheltenham's Everyman Theatre this April 2024. 

Proving to be far more than a ‘whodunnit’, the show promises to baffle even the most skilful detectives, as audiences follow a young man who arrives at the home of a famous mystery writer — only to be unwittingly drawn into a tangled web of intrigue and gamesmanship, where nothing is quite as it appears.

Running from Tuesday 16 to Saturday 20 April 2024, this dark psychological ‘thriller about thrillers’ features a stellar cast led by Coronation Street’s notorious baddie, Todd Boyce, and Eastender's star Neil McDermott — expertly directed by the award-winning Rachel Kavanaugh.

Winning the Tony Award for Best Play, Sleuth is the inspiration behind the hugely successful 1972 film of the same name, starring Laurence Olivier and Michael Cain.
