Harry Lister Smith (acclaimed UK breakthrough film God’s Own Country and A Woman of No Importance in the West End) is today announced as final casting in Tumulus, a fast-paced thriller transferring to Soho Theatre from 16 April to 4 May.
He joins the previously announced Ian Hallard (The Boys in the Band, Vaudeville and Park Theatre) and Ciarán Owens (The Last Kingdom on Netflix, Candide, RSC), who were in the original production at VAULT 2018, winner of an Origins Award for Outstanding New Work.
When Anthony’s one-night stand is found dead on Hampstead Heath, everyone assumes that he is another casualty of London’s chemsex culture. When a second body is discovered, Anthony suspects foul play and is thrust into a heart-pounding journey to uncover the truth.
Inspired by a true story, this sharp and witty modern thriller by Christopher Adams, directed by Matt Steinberg, has all of the ingredients of a nail-biting murder mystery – a troubled detective, lying witnesses, spurned lovers and red-herrings.
Just three actors play over 40 roles between them, creating digitally generated voices and orchestrating live foley sound effects.
There will be post show discussions on Saturday 20 and 27 April at 4pm presented in association with world-leading sexual health clinic 56 Dean Street and Outside Edge Theatre Company – the UK’s only theatre company focused on issues around substance abuse and addiction.
