THE RULES: SEX, LIES & SERIAL KILLERS
Psychopaths Jay, Mel and Steven meet up once in a while to unwind, hang up their guns and let their hair down - within a few guidelines established for their protection and anonymity of course. But when the innocent Teresa enters their world, loyalties are tested and the rules start to get broken, one by one. And when serial killers break the rules, the consequences can be a little...messy. But hey, rules are made to be broken, aren't they?
Sprocket was established in 2012 to create theatre that moves, challenges, haunts and entertains. We do this by working on all levels from a place of truth and positivity, engaging new and emerging talent, and ensuring women represent at least fifty per cent of each production – on and off stage. Previous productions include THE DEEP SPACE at the Old Red Lion Theatre, London (★★★★ Female Arts, ★★★★ The Public Reviews, ★★★★ Everything Theatre).
