The Watermill Theatre announces full cast & creative team for the world premiere stage adaptation of ‘THE SUSPICIONS OF MR WHICHER’

The Watermill Theatre has announced the full cast and creative team for the world premiere stage adaptation of Kate Summerscale’s best-selling non-fiction thriller, THE SUSPICIONS OF MR WHICHER, which runs at The Watermill from Friday 5 May to Saturday 10 June 2023.

Summer 1860, an elegant country house, a young boy is found dead in an outside privy. All clues point towards the murderer being a member of the grieving household. But which one?

Called to the scene is the most celebrated detective of his day, Jonathan Whicher from Scotland Yard. Faced with an inept local police force, a middle-class family ravaged by secrets, and a lack of evidence, will he be able to solve the case?

This original Victorian whodunit becomes a battle of wits between the professional detective and the only one who knows what really happened. In this fresh re-telling, fact and fiction bleed into each other, and the Truth becomes something to be fought over.

THE SUSPICIONS OF MR WHICHER will be directed by Kate Budgen, with design by Amy Jane Cook, with lighting design by Katy Morison, with projection design from Rachel Sampley, and with sound design and composition from Beth Duke. The stage management team are Emily Stedman (DSM), Natalie Toney (ASM) and Phoebe Butcher (ASM placement).
