BY THE WRITERS OF MURDER, SHE WROTE RICHARD LEVINSON & WILLIAM LINK

Following the phenomenal decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Theatre Company, which sold over two million tickets and continually played to packed houses around the UK, Bill Kenwright presents a new production from the pen of the legendary award-winning writing team Levinson and Link, whose work includes the mystery series Murder, She Wrote and Columbo.

The star cast features screen heart-throb GARY MAVERS of Peak Practice and Casualty fame and fresh from playing the evil Gordon Livesy in Emmerdale. Stage and screen leading man, ALEX FERNS, who gripped the nation playing the villainous Trevor Morgan in EastEnders, is joined by SUSIE AMY best known for playing the much loved Chardonnay in the ITV series Footballers’ Wives. Joining them will be chart-topper ANITA HARRIS, whose films include the Carry On franchise, pop-idol MARK WYNTER, who since his hit-parade days has featured in no fewer than seven Agatha Christie Theatre Company productions, LAUREN DRUMMOND from Holby City and BEN NEALON from ITV’s award winning drama Soldier Soldier.

Playwright Alex Dennison is left heartbroken when his fiancée and leading lady Monica Welles is found dead from an apparent suicide. On the anniversary of that ill-fated night, Alex assembles the same cast and crew in the same theatre, for a reading of his new play.
