Thrilling play Strictly Murder is making its way to Weston next month, as the tale of deceit, lies and subterfuge tours across the country.

The story is set back in April 1939 and follows the lives of Peter and Suzy – an English couple who are seemingly enjoying an idyllic life away from the impending war.

But their life is suddenly turned upside down when a stranger from Peter’s past makes an unwelcome appearance.

Peter has been living a lie and is about to be caught out as a string of revelations are set to emerge, leaving Suzy feeling distraught and betrayed.

But all may not be as it seems, with a number of bluffs and double bluffs also set to be revealed.

The play is fast-paced and stars one of Coronation Street’s most notorious villains.

Brian Capron will star as one of the policemen 14 years after his character was dramatically killed off the soap.

Capron spent two years playing serial killer Richard Hillman, but is now taking to the stage in a completely different role.

The cast also includes former Emmerdal actor Gary Turner, who will take on the role of Peter.

Strictly Murder will be at The Playhouse, in High Street, from June 26-28, with performances at 7.30pm each night and 2.30pm on June 28.

Tickets, priced £22-24, are available by calling 01934 645544, or online via www.theplayhouse.co.uk
