Stourbridge Theatre Co set to stage Jeffrey Archer's first play
8:00am Wednesday 13th March 2013 in News
STOURBRIDGE Theatre Company is getting set to stage disgraced former politician Jeffrey Archer’s first-ever play Beyond Reasonable Doubt.
The show, directed by Sandra Griswold, will run at Stourbridge Town Hall from Thursday March 21 to Saturday March 23, with performances starting at 7.30pm.
Written in 1987 after the general election, the play enjoyed a successful run in London's West End, with Frank Finlay and Wendy Craig in the leading roles.
It opens at the Old Bailey where Sir David Metcalfe is accused of the wilful murder of his terminally ill wife. Sir David finds himself locked in legal combat with his old rival, Anthony Blair-Booth QC.
Act I ends as the audience is about to hear the jury's verdict; and Act 2 takes theatregoers back to the fateful night of Lady Metcalfe's death and ends with a twist.
Tickets are available from The French Deli, 1 Coventry Street, Stourbridge, online from www.stourbridgetheatrecompany.org.uk or by telephoning 01384 812812.
