Former Corrie serial killer Brian Capron has returned to the stage to star in a national tour of Brian Clemens’ classic crime thriller, Strictly Murder, which comes to Bedfordshire’s Grove Theatre next month.
In a world where no one is who they first appear to be, and a surplus of dark secrets are revealed, are you ready to solve this crafty whodunit?
Talking Scarlet’s Strictly Murder stars stars Brian Capron (Coronation Street / Where The Heart Is / Grange Hill / Celebrity Masterchef), Corrine Wicks (Doctors / Emmerdale), Gary Turner (Emmerdale), Lara Lemon and Andrew Fettes.
April 1939. An English couple, Peter and Suzy, are living in Provence in idyllic isolation, far, it seems, from the rumblings of the coming war.
Their peace is shattered from within when Suzy discovers she has been betrayed: Peter is not the man he claims to be.
Suzy’s life is thrown into turmoil as the possibility arises that Peter may in fact be a ruthless killer on the run.
Then a Scotland Yard detective arrives and events become even more complicated and frightening.
Lies, subterfuge and murder make this fast-moving thriller a dark and disturbing roller coaster of bluff and double bluff.
