FATHER BROWN - The Murderer in the Mirror

A thrilling, intriguing new whodunit - touring autumn/spring 2020/21

based on the classic mysteries by G K Chesterton

When a famous actor is found dead just before the opening of his latest West End production, Father Brown - invited by the leading actor to watch the dress rehearsal - sees at once in the shattered dressing room mirror that all is not as it seems. And if all the possible suspects were on stage at the time, watched by Father Brown, who could possibly be the murderer!

John Lyons (hugely familiar to audiences from his 17 years as DS George Toolan, David Jason’s sidekick in “A Touch of Frost”) joins us once again to play Father Brown. John’s other TV appearances include “Upstairs Downstairs”, “The Onedin Line”, “On the Buses”, “George and Mildred” and “The Sweeney”.

a spine-tingling new play based on M R James' classic ghost story

touring autumn 2020

Professor Parkins imagines his holiday on the East Anglian coast will be a relaxing
antidote to the rigours of college life, an enjoyable mix of golf and amateur
archeology ... but when a little light digging uncovers a long-buried bronze whistle,
with a cryptic inscription, his carefree sabbatical transforms itself into a ghastly
nightmare, the consequences of which will haunt him forever.
