Case Of The Frightened Lady UK Tour

Following its successful premiere earlier this year, it has been announcedthat John Partridge will lead the cast for the autumn tour of The Case Of The Frightened Lady commencing on 3 September 2018.

Inspector Tanner is called to investigate a ruthless murder at the grand ancestral home of the Lebanon Family. Navigating a bloodline obsessed patriarch, a groundskeeper with a grudge and two unsettling footmen, Inspector Tanner discovers nothing is quite as it seems. As Tanner moves closer to the heart of the mystery he uncovers a shocking and closely-guarded secret…

John Partridge is to play Inspector Tanner. Best known to audiences as Christian Clarke in EastEnders, John is one of the UK’s most respected leading men having starred in West End musicals such as Cats, Starlight Express, Chicago and in Bill Kenwright’s acclaimed recent production of La Cage Aux Folles.

He will be joined by: Deborah Grant, who has starred in Not Going Out and Bergerac; Robert Duncan, best known for Drop The Dead Donkey; Phillip Lowrie, best known for playing Dennis Tanner in Coronation Street; Scarlett Archer from Emmerdale; and Matt Barber from Downton Abbey.

Angus Brown, Gwynfor Jones, Rosie Thomson and Joshua Wichard complete the cast for the autumn 2018 tour of The Case Of The Frightened Lady.

Building on the phenomenal decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Company, which sold over two million tickets around the UK, the Classic Thriller Company has produced hits including adaptations from Ruth Rendell and Levison & Link, the writers of Murder She Wrote. Now they bring to the stage a new thrilling chapter from the legendary “King of the detective thriller”, Edgar Wallace.

The production is directed by Roy Marsden who is best known as an actor, particularly in his role as Commander Adam Dalgliesh in ITV’s P.D. James series, which he played for 15 years. But he has also been directing plays since he was 15 years old and had successful West End runs with Noel Coward’s Volcano and Agatha Christie’s (under the pen name Mary Westmacott) A Daughter’s a Daughter. This is now Roy’s third time directing a Classic Thriller Theatre Company production having previously directed Rehearsal for Murder and A Judgement in Stone.
