“Relationships can be murder.”
Chicago, 1924. Richard Loeb is obsessed with crime. Nathan Leopold is obsessed with Richard. High on adrenaline, they leave a trail of arson, theft, and vandalism in their wake. But Richard wants to take a step further – a step that will test Nathan’s loyalty to the limit. Can they commit the ultimate crime: a perfect murder?
A dark and thrilling musical of masochism and murder, Thrill Me has become a modern classic. Matthew Parker’s production for the Hope Theatre received numerous five-star reviews and its two leads jointly won the OffWestEnd Award for Best Male Performance in a Musical.
Thrill Me: The Leopold and Loeb Story is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. www.condcordtheatricals.co.uk

“A total joy from start to finish”
“Steamy and sexy”
“Beautiful, unsettling, dark and gripping”
“An unnerving white-knuckle ride of a show that keeps you glued to your seat for its 85 minutes”
“A noirish nightmare wreathed in furtive shadows and tinted light”
“Electric and full of sensual hedonism”
