Appealing tale of lies, murder and mystery...
MISS Marple or Hercule Poirot? Whichever your favourite the next Palace Theatre play by the Wythall Theatre Company is bound to appeal.
A thriller from the master of the genre, Francis Durbridge's Deadly Nightcap, moves from straightforward murder mystery to rollercoaster ride of deceit, deception and death.
But the reasons don't reveal themselves easily. And there are so many possible suspects and motives that untangling the maze will leave you baffled until the final curtain.
It promises to be a gripping night to keep you twisting and turning on the edge of your seat as you watch desperate men resorting to desperate acts.
But despite being the 40th anniversary play the production is tinged with sadness as it is dedicated to a player who died suddenly in September. Angela Smith spent 20 years with the company, contributing in various ways.
Company member Paul Hughes said:
"She had been cast in this production and her death left the company shocked and devastated. And it is with heartfelt affection that these performances are dedicated to her memory."
