Thrilling mystery is the next up

Craig Gibbons 11th Jul, 2018

THE CLASSIC Theatre Company’s ‘The Case of the Frightened Lady’ comes to Malvern in the next stop of its UK-wide tour.

Film star Oliver Phelps will make his stage debut, having played the character of George Weasley in one of the most successful film franchises of all time, Harry Potter.

He is joined by TV’s Deborah Grant, who among her many roles has starred in the BBC’s Not Going Out and Bergerac.

Continuing in the cast are TV favourites Gray O’Brien (Coronation Street, The Bill, Casualty), Dennis Lill (The Royal, Only Fools and Horses), Philip Lowrie (Coronation Street), April Pearson (Skins), Ben Nealon (Soldier Soldier) and Glenn Carter (Jesus Christ Superstar).

When Inspector Tanner is called in to investigate a ruthless murder at Mark’s Priory, the grand ancestral home of the Lebanon family, he quickly discovers that nothing is quite as it seems.

The household is controlled by the family physician, the footmen behave more like guests than servants and the secretary Isla is afraid for her life.

As Tanner moves closer to the heart of the mystery he uncovers a shocking and closely guarded secret.

The Case of the Frightened Lady will be on stage at Malvern Theatres from Tuesday, July 17 to Saturday, July 21.

Tickets are on sale at the Box Office 01684 892277 and online at www.malvern-theatres.co.uk.
