Park Theatre is preparing for the UK Premiere of the psychological thriller, The Other Place, in which a brilliant neurologist descends into disorientation.
Confident, intelligent and highly successful neurologist Juliana Smithton is at the top of her game. But while delivering a lecture to a roomful of doctors, she’s interrupted by a series of disturbing events. With her husband filing for divorce and her health in the balance, Juliana’s life suddenly starts unravelling.
As details emerge of a ten-year-old mystery, fact blurs with fiction, the past collides with the present, secrets are spilled and slowly the elusive and shocking truth is revealed. Nothing is as it seems in the UK Premiere of Sharr White’s brilliantly crafted and emotionally charged psychological thriller.
