What makes a serial killer tick? And are there ever tell-tale signs? Scottish detective David Swindle investigates the UK’s most notorious serial killers in the West End premiere of The Makings of a Murderer.
Playing for one-night only at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End, David Swindle presents a chilling, thrilling, night at the theatre as he explores famous murder cases from the detective’s perspective – and the clues behind The Makings of a Murderer.
“Serial Killers are cunning, conniving, controlling, careful and – I hate to say it – clever,” says David. “They live apparently normal lives and get away with their crimes for years… until eventually detected.”
Hear about the Britain’s most infamous serial killers, including Jack the Ripper, Peter Tobin, Harold Shipman, Peter Sutcliffe and the ‘killer couples’ – Fred & Rose West and Moors Murderers Ian Brady & Myra Hindley.
With more than 34 years experience as a senior detective, David Swindle shares his unique insight into the mind of a murderer, the famous cases that were never solved, and how murderers got away with it… from someone on the inside.
David, whose ground-breaking Operation Anagram uncovered the activities of Peter Tobin, paints an often-dark picture of how these monsters come to be in a gripping, fully-interactive, audio-visual first. David also looks at the connections to the local area of the most famous murder cases.
Currently on a 100-date UK tour, The Makings of a Murderer is a chilling, thrilling, night at the theatre not to be missed.
