A prestigious university rocked by scandal and death.
After Charles Loathian, one of the university's brightest students
is caught cheating by his girlfriend, Lucy, she not only kills him, but mutilates
his body leaving pieces scattered throughout the wood.
An open and shut case… or is it? When journalist Oliver Betters investigates the crime,
he hears talk of a witness, found wandering the forest – so shocked by what he had seen
that he cannot speak a word. When Oliver digs deeper, he discovers a truth darker than
anyone could've expected...
Whispers in the Wood is a noir thriller exploring deceit, abuse of power and the influence of the media.
It's also a rarity of the stage... a thriller that's actually thrilling!
