The Riddle of the Sea

Alan and Julie, both with a past, are a successful husband and wife team working on a new play. While Alan is away on a secret mission, a mysterious visitor tells Julie that her husband is suspected of being as an agent for a hostile power. Who is deceiving who? What is the threat that Alan claims to have uncovered? What is the Riddle of the Sea?

The Riddle of the Sea is a modern mystery. It is partly inspired by Erskine Childers’ classic spy thriller The Riddle of the Sands. It explores our perception of secrecy and the nature of theatre itself.

Peter Mieville is a writer/director and former consultant. He has published fiction and satire and is an experienced screenwriter. His play Mischief premiered at the Corpus Playroom in 2015. He is a graduate of Exeter College, Oxford.

‘Mischief is delicious. Hilarious and touching.’ – Carey Harrison, award winning playwright; librettist; novelist

The play is partly inspired by Erskine Childers’ classic spy thriller the Riddle of the Sands, published in 1903.

I have tried to write a modern mystery that is entertaining and that explores our perception of secrecy and the nature of theatre itself.

Peter Mieville, Writer/Director
