Priestley mystery goes on tour
Published 01/09/14



THE Theatre Royal Windsor will be the first venue in the country to host a brand new production of J B Priestley’s classic play Dangerous Corner.

Starring Robin of Sherwood’s Michael Praed and Dalziel and Pascoe’s Colin Buchanan, the play will tour the UK this autumn, directed by Michael Attenborough, the former head of London’s acclaimed Almeida Theatre.

From the writer of An Inspector Calls, J B Priestley’s first play, Dangerous Corner, is a timeless mystery where a chance remark at a dinner party exposes a world of murder and conspiracy.

Known for his iconic portrayal in the classic TV series Robin of Sherwood, Michael Praed’s other screen credits include the hit shows Dynasty and Riders. On stage he recently led the UK tours of High Society, The Sound of Music and An Ideal Husband.

Colin Buchanan is best known for playing DI Pascoe for 11 years in the hit BBC TV series Dalziel and Pascoe.


They are joined by a strong ensemble cast that includes Kim Thomson, best known for her role as Faye Lamb in ITV’s Emmerdale and Matt Milne, who starred in Steven Spielberg’s movie adaptation of War Horse and is fresh from his onscreen performance as footman Alfred Nugent in Downton Abbey.

Completing the cast are Lauren Drummond, who has had major roles in the TV dramas Holby City and Waterloo Road and Finty Williams, whose film credits include Gosford Park and Mrs Brown.

Set in 1932, all seems well at Caplan’s independent publishing house until a can of worms is unceremoniously ripped open at Robert and Freda Caplan’s dinner party.

A chance remark plunges the guests into a re-examination of the mysterious events surrounding the recent death of young Martin Caplan, and skeletons come crashing out of the closet in more ways than one. Life will never be the same again…. or will it?

Dangerous Corner will be on at the Theatre Royal Windsor from September 3 to 13. To book tickets, go to www.theatreroyalwindsor.co.uk
