Nine girls have been brutally murdered – their beauty eternally captured in charcoal.
Adam and Amy were in care together. They were friends, maybe something more for a time. Now Amy is 24, she still sees Adam… occasionally. They live apart. She is out of work and struggling to cope. Her sister Beth is only too quick to point out her inadequacies… but at least she has Adam. Only he is a convicted serial killer…
Will Amy find the strength to move on? Why is Emily, Adam’s mental health worker also falling for him? Can Adam be the influence to change these people’s lives? Is it possible for a psychopath to be the catalyst for good?
Captive Minds journeys into the dark world of obsession, exploring the morbidity of the human psyche and the charm of a damaged soul.
“Impressive” Broadway Baby (Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013
“Captive Minds was engrossing; the creepy character of Arty Clarkey and the story was unsettling; all the characters had impact and the performance gave us food for thought.” Jane McKell, AsOne Theatre
“I loved Captive Minds! Brilliantly written and well acted, you really lived up to your reputation of challenging moral judgements and I found myself questioning whether good could come out of so much bad… Powerful stuff!” Felicity Ayles
