|Another audience favorite, this world famous mystery returns to Allenberry. Anthony Shaffer's suspenseful game of cat-and-mouse is played out in a secluded English country house. Boiling Springs, PA – Allenberry Playhouse, under the leadership of Artistic Director Ryan Gibbs presents Paul Carlin (Allenberry's Damn Yankees, Goodspeed Musicals Mame) and Kevin Loreque (National Tour Cats, National Tour I Am My Own Wife) in Anthony Shaffer's Tony Award-winning thriller Sleuth, from October 7-31.
Directed by Ryan B. Gibbs, Sleuth will have its press opening on Thursday, October 8 at 7:30pm.
What do you get when you take one eccentric detective novelist, add in his wife's lover, stir in a cocktail or two, blend in a team of intrepid investigators, top it off with a dangerous proposition and mix it all together in an English manor house? One of the most deviously clever thrillers ever concocted. Plots, counterplots, and double crosses are unleashed as rivals play out deadly games in a tangled web of intrigue. Popular mystery writer Andrew Wyke (Paul Carlin) lives in a world of plot twists and intricate strategies. In discovering his wife's lover, Milo (Kevin Loreque), Mr. Wyke devises a devious plan to humiliate him. But even the best laid plans can go astray when the police arrive and a new game begins — a game where rules don't apply and the stakes are life or death.
"Allenberry audiences will remember a 20-plus year tradition of offering popular thrillers and mysteries in the fall," said Gibbs. "Programming has shifted away from those titles in recent seasons, but by popular demand from our audiences, we are bringing one back this season with Sleuth. If you love a good thrill, if you love a good mystery, if you love a story with unmatched acting that you will be talking about for days- then Sleuth is a must see!
Allenberry's production design team for Sleuth includes Tabitha Pease (Scenic Design), Elizabeth Angelozzi (Costume Design), Ryan B. Gibbs (Lighting Design), Adam Bates (Sound Design). Tara Kelly is Production Stage Manager.
Anthony Shaffer is the author of Sleuth one of the greatest theatrical hits of all time in London, New York and throughout the world, winning the Tony Award as the Best Play of 1971. Other stage plays include This Savage Parade, Murderer, Widow's Weeds, and The Case of the Oily Levantine, which was presented in New York in 1982 under the title Whodunnit. In 1972 he wrote the screenplay for Forbush and the Penguins, which starred John Hurt and Hayley Mills and, in 1974, he turned Sleuth into a film which starred Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine. Sleuth was remade in 2007 with Michael Caine (this time as Wyke) and Jude Law, with a script update by Harold Pinter. Shaffer also wrote the screenplay for the Alfred Hitchcock film, Frenzy. Other screenplays include The Wicker Man and Absolution, which starred Richard Burton, and three Agatha Christie adaptations: Death on the Nile, Evil Under the Sun and Appointment With Death with Peter Ustinov as 'Hercule Poirot.' Mr. Shaffer developed the storyline for the film Sommersby starring Jodie Foster and Richard Gere. Anthony's autobiography, So What Did You Expect?, was published by Picador in 2002. Anthony Shaffer died November 6, 2001.
