Agatha Christie murder mystery to visit Playhouse for five nights

A TALE of mystery, love and deceit will visit Liverpool from 24-28 April, as classic Agatha Christie tale Love from a Stranger heads to the Playhouse.

 A co-production by Royal & Derngate, Northampton and Fiery Angel, who worked alongside the Everyman & Playhouse on The Ladykillers in 2011, Love from a Stanger is an edge-of-the-seat thriller by one of the UK’s greatest crime-writers.

The story follows Cecily Harrington, as a whirlwind romance with a handsome and charming stranger sweeps her off her feet. She recklessly abandons her old life to settle in the remote and blissful surroundings of a country cottage, however Cecily’s newfound love is not all that he seems…

Full casting includes Justin Avoth (Nigel Lawrence), Helen Bradbury (Cecily Harrington), Sam Frenchum (Bruce Lovell), Alice Haig (Mavis Wilson), Molly Logan (Ethel), Crispin Redman (Dr Gribble), Nicola Sanderson (Louise Garrard) and Gareth Williams (Hodgson). 

Director Lucy Bailey said: “What attracted me was the dark undercurrents and how relevant it is, how we don’t know people and what erotic addiction and compulsion blinds us in our lives. The successful liar is what’s so fascinating to Christie.”

Love from a Stranger visits the Playhouse for eight performances at the Playhouse this April. Tickets are on sale now and available by calling Box Office on 0151 709 4776 or at: www.everymanplayhouse.com/whats-on.
