FINAL casting has been announced for Christopher Adams’ award-winning Tumulus. A fast-paced noir-style murder mystery thriller set against the backdrop of London’s gay scene, it runs at Soho Theatre from April 16 to May 4, 2019.

Joining previously announced Ian Hallard and Ciarán Owens will be Harry Lister Smith, whose credits include the film God’s Own Country and A Woman of No Importance in the West End.

When Anthony’s one-night stand is found dead on Hampstead Heath, everyone assumes that he is another casualty of London’s chemsex culture. When a second body is discovered, Anthony suspects foul play and is thrust into a heart-pounding journey to uncover the truth.

Inspired by a true story, this sharp and witty modern thriller by Christopher Adams, directed by Matt Steinberg, has all the ingredients of a nail-biting murder mystery – a troubled detective, lying witnesses, spurned lovers and red-herrings.

Just three actors play over 40 roles between them, creating digitally generated voices and orchestrating live foley sound effects.

Tumulus is designed by Alison Neighbour, with lighting design by Christopher Nairne, sound design by Nick Manning and movement direction by Natasha Harrison.

NB: Tumulus contains sex and drug references and is therefore suitable for ages 16 years and over.
