MOB – At Centaur Theatre until March 29th, 2020
The English version of the original French psychological thriller written by Catherine-Anne Toupin – La Meute , has already been extended by a week due to popular demand.
We are introduced to Sophie who loses her job under traumatic circumstances. She seeks refuge by leaving town and coming to the door of a remote Bed & Breakfast run by the elderly but welcoming Louise and her pleasant nephew, Martin.
What happens next will leave you gasping.
This brilliant psychological thriller- centered around the topic of misogyny and trauma – promises to keep the audience in suspense up to the very end.
Written by Catherine-Anne Toupin
Translation by Chris Campbell
Directed by Andrew Shaver
With Susan Bain, Matthew Kabwe and Adrianne Richards
