The one-act play, named after the address in which Brady and Hindley used to live, is being presented as part of a graduate showcase by final year students on 12 and 13 May, and is already a sell-out.

Hickman has said of his production: "I realise that this is a very controversial subject to tackle. My intention is not to glorify these two people but rather to present a psychological analysis of them.

"I have attempted to bring together the very ordinary and mundane aspects of their life together with the fact that they are committing these terrible crimes - and how each of them deals with that in a very different way."
