'MEIWES/BRANDES' is a daring, raw and original piece of music theatre created by four RADA graduates, which chronicles the true story of a dark and disturbing relationship. It premiers in April at The Actors Centre as part The Tristan Bates Theatre's inaugural 'John Thaw Initiative.'

"My legs are trembling. My whole body is basting in sweat. This feels right. This is how it should be"
