A HEAVYWEIGHT cast of famous names have been pulled together to star in a classic whodunit tale.
Now in its eighth year, the Agatha Christie Theatre Company is presenting a thrilling production of the queen of crime's classic Go Back for Murder.
Its UK tour has been so successful that additional dates have been added this autumn, including a stop-off at Torquay's Princess Theatre from Monday, September 16, to Saturday, September 21.
The story is packed with intrigue, murder and suspense and was adapted by Christie in 1960 from her novel Five Little Pigs, editing out the legendary detective Poirot for the stage version.
The cast includes Emmerdale actress Liza Goddard, whose other TV credits include the BBC's Bergerac and ITV's long-running game show Give Us A Clue; model Sophie Ward, whose TV and film works include the award-winning BBC period drama series Land Girls, ITV's Heartbeat, and BBC's Holby City; former child actress Robert Duncan, fondly remembered for his role as jargon spouting chief executive Gus Hedges in Channel 4's Drop The Dead Donkey; and Gary Mavers, ITV's Peak Practice's smoldering medic Andrew Attwood.
Together with Lysette Anthony, of Three Up, Two Down, and Jeremy Forsyth, of Soldier, Soldier, the cast tells the story of Carla Le Marchant who has to live with a disturbing family secret – her mother, Caroline Crale, died in prison while serving life for killing her husband.
But on finding a letter in which Caroline claims that she's innocent, Carla becomes obsessed, determined to clear her mother's name.
Enlisting the help of Justin Fogg, the son of Caroline's defence lawyer, Carla tracks down a number of people from her mother's tragic past, only to uncover a shocking truth.
Expect suspects, secrets, and suspense created from the mind of the famous crime author.
