"Compelling from beginning to end, superbly acted and an absorbing plotline to match”

London Theatre 1


Frederick Clegg loves Miranda Grey.


Miranda Grey loves Frederick Clegg, she just doesn't know it yet.


She has never met him, she has never spoken to him, but she will fall in love with him, Frederick will make sure of that, no matter what.


Adapted by Mark Healy from the classic novel by John Fowles, The Collector is the story of a lonely butterfly collector and his obsession with a beautiful art student. When Frederick comes into a large amount of money, he buys a deserted country house and makes preparations to accommodate a very special house guest.


The Collector is a tense, psychological, edge of the seat thriller. Will Miranda become a permanent addition to his collection or will she be able to convince him to let her fly free?
