The Thing About Psychopaths

7 March 2013 - 19 May 2013

Britain. 2013. Times are hard, but the money’s still out there if you know where to look and are prepared to gamble. Whether it’s prison or the corporate world, there are rules to be followed. Only the fittest survive. It’s every man for himself.

A searing, funny and thought-provoking new play from Ben Tagoe (‘Cold Turkey at Nana’s’ – Oran Mor / Perth Theatre, ‘Bittersweet Sunshine’ – Red Ladder and BBC Writers Academy), ‘The Thing about Psychopaths’ asks important questions about power and empathy in modern Britain.

‘The play’s sharpness, competence and passion for its theme are memorable, and full of promise.’ The Scotsman on Ben Tagoe’s Cold Turkey at Nana’s
