Revered West End director and producer Bill Kenwright is set to entertain Weston-super-Mare audiences with his new production of classic thriller Rehearsal For Murder.

The show tells the story of playwright Alex Dennison, who is left heartbroken when his fiancée and leading lady, Monica Welles, is found dead from an apparent suicide after the opening night of her stage debut.

On the anniversary of that ill-fated night, Alex assembles the same cast and crew in the same theatre for a reading of his new play.

However, as the reading begins, it becomes clear Alex believes Monica was murdered and his new play becomes a devious cat-and-mouse chase to uncover her killer.

Rehearsal For Murder will be at The Playhouse, in High Street, Weston, from August 1-6.

Performances will be held at 7.30pm daily, while matinee shows will also take place at 2.30pm on August 3 and 6.

Tickets, priced £26-28.50, are available from 01934 645544 or online via The Playhouse website.
