The police. The law. They know nothing of Chummy.
Someone out there is afraid. Afraid of becoming a murderer. Terrified of killing someone. Anyone. The phone calls keep coming from a pleading man desperate for help. A man desperate for someone to stop him killing.
Private investigator Jackie Striker is hired by an anonymous serial killer for the biggest case of her life. Paid to stop him murdering, Jackie must face the consequences of counselling the mysterious ‘Chummy’ on a dark journey that will push her to her limits.
BAFTA award-winning writer John Foster and critically acclaimed company Encompass Productions present the world premiere of Chummy: a dark and cinematic neo-noir thriller that promises to be an unforgettable theatrical experience.
