Pear Productions and New Celts Productions The Murder Club
Based on true stories, Steve Hennessy’s play follows two inmates at Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum, Richard Prince and Ronald True. Watched on by the frustrated ghost of Olive Young, a prostitute murdered by True, and Jane Coleman, the murder-obsessed warden, Prince attempts to join The Murder Club, a group of the world’s most renowned killers, by performing a play written by True. True manipulates Prince into reliving his victim’s gruesome death and pressures Coleman into indulging in her own sinister urges. Meanwhile, Olive wonders if death is really so bad after all?
