The Colin Mcintyre Classic Thriller Season is to return in the summer to Nottingham’s Theatre Royal.

The Classic Thriller Company will return to thrill, enthral and keep you on the edge of your seat.

Don’t miss out on four weeks of murder, intrigue, mystery and first class entertainment, which runs from July 28–August 23.

From Monday, July 28-Saturday, August 2, there’s another outing for The Ghost Train, written by Dad’s Army star Arnold Ridley.

Stranded in the middle of nowhere, a group of travellers hear tales of The Ghost Train. Is there really a phantom train, or are there more sinister, earthly forces at work?

If you liked that, you’ll love the second production in the series. From Monday, August 4-Saturday, August 9, you can see Shadow of the Ghost, a comedy thriller written by Nicholas Ridley and Chris Ponka

When the Lemon Tree Players decided to present a production of Arnold Ridley’s famous thriller The Ghost Train, little did they realise that they themselves would be wrapped up in a murder mystery to rival that of any fictitious plot…

From Monday, August 11- Saturday, August 16, Fatal Encounter, written by Francis Durbridge, is to be performed.

Durbridge’s work is always popular with Classic Thriller Season audiences and this latest offering should be no exception.

After Howard’s wife, Joanna, has committed a fatal shooting, he admits to being responsible. However, how blameless can anyone ever be?

The season concludes with a play by another writer who is regularly featured in Classic Thriller Season programmes, Brian Clemens.

In his thriller Murder Weapon, at first, the murder of Paul Tulliver appears to be an open and shut case.

But, as the police investigate the murder, it becomes apparent that all is not as it seemed.

Performance times are Mon–Fri evenings 7.30pm, Wednesday matinee 2pm, and then on Saturdays at 5pm and 8pm.

Tickets are £11-£21 plus concessions. Call the box office on 0115 989 5555.
