The Lindbergh Kidnapping. O.J. Simpson. The Great Train Robbery. Many events have been dubbed the crime of the twentieth century, but few surpass the menace of the ‘Thrill Killers’, Leopold and Loeb.
In Chicago, 1924, two college kids sign a contract in blood. Nietzsche-obsessed Loeb has a serious superiority complex – he’s a ‘Superman’, above the constraints of good and evil. Leopold is a loner and a willing accomplice, craving his partner’s time, attention and conditional love. Can they perpetrate the perfect crime?
This multi-award-winning, five-star production returns to London for five performances at Grimeborn, complete with the original UK creative team.
