Can a man really rob a bank and kill two people under hypnosis? The police psychologist, Dr Kennedy, thinks so and sets out to prove it.
Peter Hardy doesn’t fit the psychological profile of your average double murderer. There’s something vulnerable about him. Perhaps Hardy was not acting entirely alone. Perhaps Hardy is a victim of ‘mind control’ and was acting under the command of another?
This extraordinary story is based on true events that took place in Denmark in the 1950’s and whilst this production is updated to the present day, the facts of the case are unchanged.
We would like to thank Dominic Streatfeild, author of ‘Brainwash’ for his research into the original case that inspired this production.
