Jonathan Broadbent stars as De Lorde alongside Paul Chequer (Ratineau), Matthew Pearson (Binet), Robert Portal (Paulais), Emily Raymond (Maxa) and Andy Williams (Maurey)

Directed by Theatre Royal Plymouth's artistic director Simon Stokes.

1903, in the back streets of Monmartre, the Theatre du Grand Guignol opens its doors to an unsuspecting public. The plays performed, rife with madness and murders, are sold out every night. A psychiatrist obsessed with the playwright's gruesome dramas ingratiates his way into the company. But when he starts to unpick the author's mind, the boundaries between theatre and truth begin to blur…

This production is recommended for those aged 14+.
