by Thomas Middleton and William RowleyDirector Jackie Maxwell
A PERFECT CRIME, UNTIL YOU GET AWAY WITH IT
A woman hires a hit man to murder her fiancé, only to become
trapped in a web of lust and deceit. All the suspense of a film noir thriller, in a drama by contemporaries of Shakespeare.
The Changeling deals with mature themes of sexuality and violence.
