Brother Wolf Emblem with Words

Circa 1970 – the Dawn of the Age of Ophiuchus, as faddish mysticism becomes something more dangerous. In a room in Calme Manor, blooded by an appalling ritual, a protective chalk circle has been drawn. Inside the circle sits Professor Harry Cutley, trendy academic and occultist, seemingly intent on undoing a dangerous spell cast by a former pupil. Outside the intangible barrier stands Inspector Nicholas Gammell, Nicker of the Yard, a rational detective with an unsolved case on his books and a suspect in his sights. Tonight, both men will seek answers to mysteries vast and colossal...

 

This sinister two-handed mystery play is the first full-length dramatic work for the theatre by renowned novelist Kim Newman, author of the critically acclaimed 'Anno Dracula' novels, starring award-winning actor/producer James Hyland and Michael Shon (of Brother Wolf's 'A Lesson from Auschwitz').
