Middle Ground Theatre Company Ltd presents

BY RUTH RENDELL (writing as Barbara Vine)


A world stage premiere from the pen of one of the world’s greatest thriller writers.

When Sandor snatched little Joe from the path of a London tube train, he was quick to make clear the terms of the rescue. “I saved your life”, he told the homeless youngster, “so your life belongs to me now”.

Sandor began to tell him a fairy-tale: an ageing prince, a kidnapped princess chained by one ankle, a missed rendezvous… But what did this mysterious story have to do with Sandor? Joe only understood his own role – he was a Gallowglass, the servant of a chief…

This classy thriller is brought to you by Middle Ground Theatre Company, whose recent productions here include The Verdict and A Murder Is Announced.
