STALKING THE BOGEYMAN
About The Show
"This time last year I was plotting to kill a man.”
Twenty-five years after he was sexually assaulted, award-winning journalist David Holthouse learns his ‘bogeyman’ has moved to his new neighbourhood. Armed with a pistol and a plan, he plots to enact revenge on the man who stole his childhood.
First told in the Denver Westwood newspaper and subsequently featured on the popular weekly radio broadcast This American Life, Stalking The Bogeyman opened to critical-acclaim off-Broadway in 2014. Starring Gerard McCarthy (The Fall, Hollyoaks, Beautiful Thing) with Glynis Baber (EastEnders, Beautiful: The Carole King Story), this thrilling true story of one man’s search for vengeance arrives at London’s Southwark Playhouse this July.
