A thigh slapping, belly aching romp of a whodunit comedy full of ingenious skits.” – British Theatre Guide There were times during the performance when couples in the audience turned their heads from the stage to grin at each other as they identified with quarrels taking place on stage.

Theatre Royal and The Case of Two Mad King Georges The Theatre Royal and The Case of Two Mad King Georges

We need a victim the audience would cheerfully hate,” says Nigel just before his gin-swilling, cantankerous wife Ann comes in to refill her glass. Once she is selected as the fictional murder victim, the two writers decide to kill her in real life. They have written several murder mysteries, so they know how to prepare for any eventuality. Nothing can go wrong—or can it? In the home of the restless ghost of the Grey Lady, world premieres by Emma Rice, Matthew Bourne and Tonderai Munyevu will be complemented by scary appearances by horror favourites Dracula, The Hound Of the Baskervilles and the Headless Horseman. Henry Goodman stars as Hercule Poirot in a brand-new stage production of Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express which visits Bath exclusively, direct from its opening at Chichester Festival Theatre. Appearing at the Theatre Royal Bath from Thursday 9 th to Saturday 25 th June, Christie’s thrilling murder mystery is directed by Jonathan Church, Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal’s Summer Season ( Betrayal, An Ideal Husband, The Price). The season has changed over the years. Now, in the capable hands of Tabs Productions, it has moved away slightly from the original format. Short and squat, a man of around sixty stood before them. Glassy eyes a touch too prominent, strands of wispy hair sprouting from his head, he was a striking figure. A grin was plastered on his face, revealing misshapen teeth stained an unbecoming yellow.’When Nigel receives a poison pen letter in the post, Detective Inspector Berry arrives to investigate. Jeremy Lloyd Thomas portrays him almost—but not quite—as a pantomime character. He is an amateur dramatics fan who is influenced by Agatha Christie and Francis Durbridge as well as Forbes and Goodman whose plays he knows inside out. Rebecca Charles ’s recent theatre credits include The Dresser (Theatre Royal Bath), An Ideal Husband (Vaudeville Theatre), The Graduate (West Yorkshire Playhouse), The Father (Duke of York’s/Wyndham’s/Tricycle/Theatre Royal Bath), Les Liaisons Dangereuses, (Salisbury Playhouse), The Old Country (English Touring Theatre/Trafalgar Studios), Julius Caesar , (Barbican and Tour) and Great Expectations (Manchester Royal Exchange). Her film credits include The Heart of Me , Bridget Jones’s Diary , Shakespeare in Love and Mrs Brown . Pacily directed by Philip Franks, Murder in the Dark is a well-constructed chiller that mixes jump-out-of-your-seat scares with moments of unnerving dread. Written by Brian Clemens and Dennis Spooner, All about Murder takes place in the writing studio at the Oxfordshire country home of Nigel Forbes, played by David Callister. I was excited to read this book - I enjoy a good cosy crime and love 'period' stories. The cover is also very good and the title straight forward and telling it as it is. And I was not disappointed with the plot. There were several red herrings and plot twists and the story has a feisty female lead who has something to prove and her work cut out to get things right.
