THRILLER The Late Edwina Black is set to keep audiences on the edge of their seats at The Gordon Craig Theatre.

The invalid Edwina Black has died and is about to be buried when, the night before the funeral, Detective Martin from Scotland Yard arrives to say there is suspicion surrounding her death and the funeral must be delayed so a post-mortem may be carried out.

By this time we know Edwina's widower, Gregory, and her companion, Elizabeth, are lovers, freed by her death and her bequeathed fortune to run away to Italy together - a plan to which Scotland Yard's arrival puts an abrupt and unwelcome end.

Will the couple find happiness or will Edwina continue to dominate their lives in death as she did in life?

The play is led by an all-star cast, including Stephen Beckett - Dr Matt Ramsden in Coronation Street and PC Mike Jarvis in The Bill - and Stephen McGann - love rat Sean Reynolds in Emmerdale.

This production will run until Saturday. Performances start at 7.45pm and there will be matinee performances at 2.30pm today (Thursday) and on Saturday. Tickets, which start from £15.50, are available from the box office on 08700 131 030 or online at www.gor don-craig.co.uk
