The Creeper

A young man with a dubious past cajoles his way into the home of a rich eccentric. As he starts to exert his power and put pressure on the status quo, dark secrets begin to emerge.

Ian Richardson, who plays Edward Kimberley in this psychological drama, is a star of stage, television and film. His last West End performance came in The Magistrate in 1997, though he may be best known for his television work which includes the highly-acclaimed House Of Cards.
