Durbridge thriller will hook you

The Colin McIntyre Classic Thriller Season continues to draw in the summer audiences for its 25th consecutive year at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham.

Following on from the opening offering of the season - Murder LIVE! (see review on page 24) - the second play to be performed is The Gentle Hook by Francis Durbridge.

Presented by Tabs Productions and the Theatre Royal Nottingham, it can be seen from August 5-10.

Stacey Harrison is a charming, intelligent, sophisticated and highly successful career woman. Shortly after her return from a trip abroad, she is attacked by an intruder and, in the ensuing struggle, kills him. Cracks soon start to appear in her story and gripping thriller unfolds.

Karen Henson, co-producer of the Classic Thriller Season, said: “The audiences are always so warm at the Theatre Royal we’ve come to look upon them as friends.”

Tickets cost £10-£20 and are available from the box office on 0115 9895555.
