Classic retelling of BBC radio thrillers

TWO of the UK’s best loved actors will be appearing on stage in a gripping radio thriller.

Jenny Seagrove and Tom Conti will re-create the nostalgia of Thirties BBC radio dramas in Murder On Air. Presented by the Agatha Christie Company, the show features three radio thrillers from the ‘Queen of Crime’, read in an authentic studio setting with live sound effects, in the style of their original BBC broadcasts.

Special guest stars will join each performance, accompanied by a full supporting cast of players.

Jenny Seagrove has enjoyed a prolific theatre career which has seen her play the lead in almost every West End playhouse. She is known to millions of TV viewers as barrister Jo Mills from the Bafta-award winning Judge John Deed. Her recent credits include Noël Coward’s Present Laughter, Brief Encounter, Volcano and The Country Girl with Martin Shaw.

Tom Conti joins Murder On Air fresh from his critically acclaimed West End run in Reginald Rose’s Twelve Angry Men. He is perhaps best known for his leading roles in the hit films Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence and Shirley Valentine. He has appeared as a myriad of characters on both the big and small screen as well as on stage. He and Dame Judi Dench were recently jointly voted the most popular actors in the West End in the last 25 years.
