The Rules – Sex, Lies And Serial Killers

By | Published on Thursday 27 August 2015

The Rules

What happens when you put three psychopaths in a room together? Nothing good – that’s why Mel, Jay and Steven have devised ‘The Rules’. Every once in a while they meet in secret to exchange stories and experiences, safe in the belief that these rules will protect them. You can be forgiven for expecting psychopaths to be difficult to relate to, but this play is crafted so expertly, the twists and turns revealed at such perfect moments, that you’ll find yourself rooting for these completely believable, full characters along the way. It takes some skill to trivialise death in such a humorous fashion and still keep hold of emotion and meaning the way they do, and for that they should be commended.
