Night Must Fall

Wed Green matinee 2.30pm*
Sat matinee 2.30pm

by Emlyn Williams

It’s frightening to think what a face can hide…

When charming, smooth-talking Dan arrives unexpectedly at old Mrs Bramson’s remote woodland home he soon ingratiates his way into her life and that of her beautiful niece Olivia.  But when a local woman goes missing and rumours in the press of a murder surface among the household, fingers begin to point. Has the past finally caught up with Dan and could he really be capable of murder? As the police close in, and with the press baying for blood, is anyone safe?

This psychological thriller from master playwright Emlyn Williams has all the tension, atmosphere and suspicion of the best British mysteries and will leave you on the edge of your seat.

A star cast includes Gwen Taylor (Barbara, Coronation Street and Heartbeat) and Daragh O’Malley (Sharpe), Niamh McGrady (The Fall, Holby City) and Will Featherstone (Fresh Meat, Ashes to Ashes)
