WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
An evening in the head of the Master of Suspense. Alfred Hitchcock, at the height of his powers, is possessed by a dreamlike vision of a woman. From his director's chair the sixty year old Hitchcock begins to unravel some of the defining films of our time, drawing us into the imagination of one of the world's most mysterious creative minds. Adapted for New Perspectives from his award-winning radio play, Rudkin's poetic new play takes a unique look at the way the great filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock developed the ideas of his most famous films, including Marnie, Vertigo, Psycho and Strangers On A Train. The result is a unique and haunting character study and an unprecedented journey into the mind of one our most fascinating cultural icons.
