Inspired by true events, Patrick Hamilton’s 1929 play is an edge-of-your-seat thriller about two young men who murder a classmate in cold blood, just for the sheer “thrill of it”. The story unfolds in real-time, watching as the young men host a party with the deceased still in their apartment. A chilling look into the mind of young killers and the idea that some men deserve the “privilege” of murder. (
