Christie spoof in thriller season

THE second week of the Classic Thriller Season at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal features a production of Death By Fatal Murder.

Peter Gordon’s spoof of the Agatha Christie genre is sure to tickle the funnybone of lovers of murder mysteries and can be seen from August 15-20.

The other two plays still to be performed in the series are Strangers On A Train and Murderous Liaisons.

The former is on from August 22-27 and is an adaptation by Craig Warner of Patricia Highsmith’s novel in which two strangers make a sinister and deadly pact, although only one of them is joking.

The latter is a play by Brian Clemens, originally called Inside Job, and is on from August 30 to September 3. It features diamond heists, deceit, double-crosses and dastardly murder plots on the Costa Del Sol, plus several twists that add to the suspense of this exciting thriller.

Ticket details for all three plays are available from the box office on 0115 9895555.
