Dangerous Corner - Richmond Theatre and on tour

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

MICHAEL Attenborough will direct J.B. Priestley’s classic thriller Dangerous Corner, which visits Richmond Theatre (September 29 to October 4, 2014) as part of a UK tour.

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

All seems well at the 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?

The cast includes Robin of Sherwood‘s Michael Praed and Colin Buchanan, who is best known for playing D.I Pascoe for eleven years in the hit BBC television series Dalziel and Pascoe.

As well as Robin of Sherwood, Michael Praed’s other screen credits include Dynasty and Riders. On stage, he recently led the UK tours of High Society, The Sound of Music and An Ideal Husband.

Praed and Buchanan are joined in the cast of Dangerous Corner 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 played Footman Alfred Nugent in Downton Abbey.

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

Dangerous Corner is presented by Bill Kenwright.

The tour will launch at the Windsor Theatre Royal on Tuesday, September 2, 2014, before continuing to Mold Clwyd Theatre (September 15-20), Richmond Theatre (September 29 – October 4), Eastbourne Devonshire Park (October 6-11), Guildford Yvonne Arnaud Theatre (October 13-18), Glasgow Theatre Royal (October 27 to November 1), Birmingham Repertory Theatre (November 3-8), Malvern Festival Theatre (November 10-15), Stoke Regent Theatre (November 17-22) and Woking New Victoria Theatre (November 24-29).
