Thrill Me
by Stephen Dolginoff
Published by Samuel French Ltd

Based on the true story of Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, two 19-year-olds who murdered 14-year-old Bobby Franks in Chicago in 1924, Thrill Me focuses less on the murder itself than on the relationship between Leopold and Loeb

More than 30 years on, the older Nathan speaks at a parole board hearing, recalling the crime and the dynamics of his friendship with Richard, defined largely by their shared intelligence, their passion for Nietzschean philosophy, and their desire for the ultimate thrill

With simple staging requirements, Stephen Dolginoff’s tense, two-character musical drama explores the unusual love story behind the “crime of the century”

“There is no production currently running in the capital that is more intelligent, atmospheric and haunting than this” ~ Sunday Telegraph

“Thrill Me is thrilling indeed” ~ Evening Standard
