The job seems simple at first: all pickpocket Sue Trinder, played by Tracee Chimo (Bad Jews), has to do is help a con man, played by Josiah Bania, cheat a gullible young heiress (The Heart of Robin Hood's Christina Bennett Lind) out of her fortune. But nothing is quite what it seems in this mystery set in the shadows of Victorian England. Spiraling through London streets, madhouses, and a stifling mansion with a shocking secret, Sue finds herself in the most dangerous landscape of all: awakening sexuality, love, and betrayal. Oregon Shakespeare Festival Artistic Director Bill Rauch (All the Way) directs this adaptation of Sarah Waters’ best-selling novel, a finalist for the Man Booker Prize.

 

Age Appropriateness

Recommended for grades 9 and up.
Mature high school students will enjoy this literate and thrilling look at Victorian England through the lens of Waters' 21st-century feminist point of view. The play contains sexual themes and imagery, occasional strong language, as well as physical and emotional violence.
