The Business of Murder

Middle Ground Theatre presents Richard Harris’ acclaimed psychological thriller The Business of Murder, which enjoyed a successful 9-year run in the West End.

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, known to millions for his role in Casualty alongside Paul Opacic (Bad Girls, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks) and Joanna Higson, who played Maxine Donnelly for 2 series of Shameless and is currently appearing as Vicky Hall in BBC TV's WPC56.
