Presented by Middle Ground Theatre Company
Written by Richard Harris

Psychological thriller The Business of Murder by Richard Harris, which enjoyed a successful 7-year run in the West End, is brought to Ipswich this year by Middle Ground Theatre Company.

Stone, a humourless and dour man, invites Dee, a television playwright, over to his flat on the premise of discussing a script. Once there, she is surprised when superintendent Hallett, the man with whom she is having an affair, also arrives for an entirely different reason.

But nothing is as it seems, and as the plot twists and turns the motive of their host Stone gradually becomes clear. They are all, it would seem, in the same business.... The Business of Murder.

Starring Robert Gwilym (Dr Max Gallagher in Casualty), alongside Paul Opacic (Bad Girls, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks) and Joanna Higson (Shameless, WPC56).

Suitable for ages 12+

"Welcome to a thriller that achieves it all" - The Times

Reviews of The Business Of Murder

What the press say


The plot thickens as you would expect from such a distinguished writer whose past glories include The Sweeney, A Touch of Frost and The Last Detective.
