THRILL ME: THE LEOPOLD & LOEB STORY

Relationships can be murder!

Chicago, 1924. Richard Loeb is obsessed with crime. Nathan Leopold is obsessed with Richard.

They sign a contract in blood to satisfy each other’s needs and embark on an intense sexual relationship powered by the thrill of committing crime. But Richard soon tires of arson, theft and petty vandalism. Under the delusion that he is an Ubermensch and above morality and law, he ropes Nathan into committing the perfect murder for the ultimate turn-on. They become the Thrill Killers.

From award winning writer Stephen Dolginoff and award winning director Matthew Parker comes THRILL ME: THE LEOPOLD & LOEB STORY; a true crime musical that has enjoyed success all over the world. In the intimate confines of The Hope Theatre, two actors will entice and chill you with an evening of masochism, music and murder. Based on a true story.

THRILL ME is the 9th in-house production from The Hope Theatre’s award winning team. It follows previous ★★★★★, Offie award nominated shows THE LESSON and BRIMSTONE & TREACLE and the award winning LOVESONG OF THE ELECTRIC BEAR.
