The Staircase's David Rudolf will be 'live in conversation', and here's how to get tickets

Since being released on Netflix in June, The Staircase has once again shone a massive spotlight on the case of Michael Peterson, who was accused of murdering his wife Kathleen in December 2001.

Along with Peterson himself, one of the documentary’s central figures is defence attorney David Rudolf, who spent over 16 years working on the Peterson case.

Now UK fans of the gripping true crime doc are being given the chance to hear Rudolf talk in-depth about the case in a one-off live discussion at the Islington Assembly Hall in London on Tuesday, October 16.

The event will see Rudolf open up on his experiences while defending Peterson and discuss topics such as his decision to allow filmmakers to document his every move.

And one hot topic in the case that will not be off bounds is the highly publicised ‘Owl Theory’, which is not featured in the documentary but has become a widespread conspiracy. It raises the possibility that Kathleen was not attacked by her husband, but by an owl.

Tickets for the event are currently on sale via and

Rudolf previously told Vulture that he thought the ‘owl theory’ was “plausible”.

The attorney said: “When you step back and really start getting familiar with the fact that there have been literally scores, if not hundreds, of documented instances of owls attacking the heads of people… and you look at the wounds and you compare them with the talons of an owl, it starts having some real credibility.”

The Staircase is available to watch now on Netflix.
