 The Agatha Christie Theatre Company is bringing an all-star cast to Aylesbury Waterside Theatre Mon 11 – Sat 16 Jul with their production of Verdict starring Susan Penhaligon. Susan Penhaligon is famed for television roles in Upstairs Downstairs, A Bouquet of Barbed Wire, and Emmerdale as Jean Hope and on stage in Three Sisters, (Albery Theatre), The Real Thing (The Strand Theatre) as well as Dangerous Obsession, Bedroom Farce, The Constant Wife, Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime and Murder on Air – the Agatha Christie Radio Plays where she will play Lisa Koletzky. Directed by Joe Harmston and designed by Simon Scullion, Susan is joined onstage by Robert Duncan who played Gus Hedges in the multi award-winning comedy Drop the Dead Donkey. The cast also includes Lyndon Ogbourne (Emmerdale’s Nathan Wylde), Peter Byrne (Dixon of Dock Green), Elizabeth Power (EastEnders) Holly Goss, Cassie Raine, Andrew Malkin, Mark Martin and 60’s pop idol Mark Wynter. Written and first performed in 1958, Verdict is one of Christie’s few original plays which is not based on a novel or short story. It premiered in the West End in May 1958, and ran for 250 performances, before later going on to open in New York and Luxembourg. Having been forced to flee persecution in his home country, the brilliant and idealistic Professor Karl Hendryk leads a content and morally upstanding life, but his world is turned upside-down when the prospect of life- saving treatment for his invalid wife persuades him to take on a new pupil against his better judgement; the spoilt, conniving minx Helen who will stop at nothing to get her way. With murderous intentions afoot, it only remains to be seen what verdict will be delivered, and if justice will prevail… Tickets are on sale now at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre Box Office call 0844 871 7607 (bkg fee) or visit http://www.ambassadortickets.com/aylesbury (bkg fee).
