Lynda Bellingham and Christopher Timothy are to star in Kay Mellor’s comedy A Passionate Woman, to be performed at Derby’s Assembly Rooms from October 14-19.

A Passionate Woman reunites the pair, who last starred together in the hit show All Creatures Great and Small, which ended in 1990.

It’s the morning of Betty’s son’s wedding and she decides to go up into the attic to dust. Surrounded by clutter, memories and ghosts from her past, Betty finds herself torn between the three men in her life – a husband she’s never loved, a son she’s about to lose and a man she had a passionate affair with over 30 years ago.

Desperate to escape it all, there’s only one place to go and that’s …up.

Most recently, Lynda Bellingham created the role of Chris in Calendar Girls and played to sold out houses in the West End and across the country.

Other credits include presenting Bellingham’s Tasty Travels, the popular afternoon chat show Loose Women and the long running series of OXO television ads.

A Passionate Woman is directed by the BAFTA award winning writer Kay Mellor, of The Syndicate, Band of Gold and Playing the Field fame.
