...are Ordinary people who commit extraordinary crimes.

Meet Eight Little Criminals in Torben Betts' new play, an original commission for the 2022 DSL graduation shows.

A tautly structured drama centring on six distinct stories, each a crisp examination of the ultimate banality of violence and murder - with compelling revelations.

Drawn from real-life events and distilled to the critical moments of discovery, we meet the victim, the perpetrator and the DIs. Each offender chooses their path with little thought of consequence, with indifference to morality, and with only their own momentary gratification in mind. As we watch we are forced to reckon with the fundamental question — if extraordinary violence is actually so ordinary, can anyone do it? Could you? Are we like them?
