Stephen Dolginoff's multi-award winning musical Thrill Me - The Leopold & Loeb Story examines the relationship between Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, self confessed "Thrill Killers".
Leopold and Loeb are both wealthy, normal and intelligent Chicago students about to commence training to become lawyers. The show begins at Leopold's 1958 parole board hearing. Through a series of flashbacks we are taken on a journey of two young men, one who believed he was above the law, obsessed and fuelled by the philosphy of Nietzsche to the point he believed he was a "Superman" beyond good and evil. The other, a loner, becomes a willing accomplice, empowering Loeb in his misdemeanours. His reward - Richard's time, attention and conditional love! Together, they both believed they had perpetrated the perfect crime, or was one more certain than the other?
Thrill Me is directed by Guy Retallack who works regularly all over the UK, as well as Germany, Greece and the USA.
