Killers, by Glenn Chandler
Old Police Cells Museum, Brighton Fringe, 28 May – 1 June 2013
Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh Fringe Show 1- 25 August 2013
Ian Brady. Peter Sutcliffe. Dennis Nilsen. One Moors Murderer, the Yorkshire Ripper and a necrophiliac slayer of young men, between them responsible for more than thirty deaths.
Locked away for life, their only communication with the outside world are letters to their ‘fans’.
Sociable, sympathetic and sinister, this intensely private and bizarre unpublished correspondence has been adapted by the creator of Taggart.
Killers is not only a revealing insight into the criminal mind, but a chilling look at ordinary members of the public who for many different reasons, some disturbing, enter into long-distance relationships with society’s most evil.
