In a new version by Jack Thorne Another nurse murdered in the world’s most illustrious sanatorium. And who’s to blame this time: Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein or the brilliant Johann Wilhelm Möbius?

But what are these great minds doing here, together at the same time? Who are these men? And what have they got to hide?

 

'We are wild animals. They can’t let us loose on humanity.'

Written in the shadow of the atom bomb and at a time of unprecedented scientific advance, Dürrenmatt’s hilariously satirical masterpiece, in this exhilarating new version by Jack Thorne, considers if insanity is the only refuge for the dangerously intelligent.
