Rules: Sex Lies and Serial Killers

Sprocket Theatre

rules imagePsychopaths Jay, Mel and Steven meet up once in a while to unwind, hang up their guns and let their hair down – within a few guidelines established for their protection and anonymity. The surprise introduction of Steven’s girlfriend Teresa, changes the dynamics of their cosy rendezvous.


The modular touring set was designed to represent the ‘breakout space’ of a media office.

The colour palette, based on Marvel comics, was chosen to contrast the darkness of the subject matter and the similarity of the professional City workers leading a secret double life.
