Vertigo Theatre Artistic Director Craig Hall says, "A diabolical psychological thriller. A rollicking detective story. A bone chilling ghost story. A neo-noir conspiracy drama. A madcap whodunnit. This season will see Vertigo continuing to explore the range of what mystery theatre has to offer. At the same time our 19/20 season highlights how active Vertigo has become in injecting new life and relevance into the genre, with three World Premieres, including two original Vertigo commissions. We will showcase stronger roles for women, more diversity, and contemporary stories, but even while we evolve the mystery theatre genre our primary objective remains the same. We will entertain you."
