Murder in mind at The White Bear

Preview by Paul Nelson

A NEW play by Andrew Cartmel, End of the Night, opens at the White Bear Theatre this month.

It is a world premiere and is a psychological thriller, written by ex-Dr Who Script Editor, Cartmel, who also has written screenplays, television scripts and novels.

Briefly, Hampstead psychiatrist, Dr Patrick Long, greets his guests on a sultry summer evening, but the gathering is not what it seems.

One of the partygoers has a twisted sense of humour and another has murder in mind.

The cast includes David Brett, Charlotte Corner, Sara Dee, Caroline Gregory, Johnny Lyne-Pirkis, David McGillivray, Jonathan Rigby and Iain Stirland.

Charlotte Corner is best known as the titian haired temptress in Dark Knight (Channel 5) and in Relic Hunter (Sky One).

Well-known as film journalists specialising in horror and the macabre, David McGillivray's credits as both actor and writer include House of Whipcord, Frightmare and Satan's Seeds, while Jonathan Rigby wrote English Gothic: A Century of Horror Cinema and is the biographer of Christopher Lee, as well as being a regular contributor to Shivers film magazine.

He also collaborated with the League of Gentlemen.

David Brett was a founder member of the chart-topping group, The Flying Pickets, with whom he sang for seven years, touring worldwide.

Sara Dee has just finished filming the sci-fi spoof feature film, Cosmic Brain Suckers, with legendary comedy actor, Norman Wisdom. She received a Performance Artist of the Year nomination in the 2000 UK Erotic Oscars.

The production marks the London debut of director Pip Minnithorpe, whose most recent work was Carl Miller's new play, Descent, at Birmingham Repertory Theatre.
