The chilly gloom of the cave is the perfect venue for this off kilter thriller which tells the tales of crimes committed by the wily inmate of a high security hospital for the criminally insane. Set in the 1950s it is dark and, at times, sinister but this is tempered by the witty word play which peppers Paul Sellar’s incisive script. The use of stark, atmospheric lighting and imposing black screens (which the five man cast deftly lift into different positions to indicate a change of setting) effortlessly creates an atmosphere of unease. An intelligent and entertaining foray into the nature of identity.
