When a large sports bag full of cash is brought into Peter’s very ordinary home, his family finds itself caught up in a sinister and disturbing chain of events. You are invited to step onto the floor and into this gripping thriller, experiencing first-hand the sordid betrayal and moral philandering that’s about to blanket this suburban dream.

Devised by Zoe Pepper and Adriane Daff of award-winning young company, Side Pony Productions, The Confidence Man is performed by audience members, equipped with masks and headsets to play out the story.

Those who prefer to watch can survey the action from the perimeter, eavesdropping on the characters’ most private thoughts and conversations.

In The Confidence Man, Dogville meets Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt. A morally complex tale complete with goodies, baddies, and a dose of good old-fashioned psychotic menace, The Confidence Man unfolds with the gripping intimacy of a tale whispered in your ear.
