INSPECTOR Frost receives a cool reception when he returns to reopen an investigation he was unable to solve the first time round.
Leslie Sands’ mystery drama Cat’s Cradle is brought to the Windmill Entertainment Centre, Littlehampton this week by the Stage-Door Theatre Company.
Described as “compelling and disturbing”, the play is set in an old coaching in a remote English village.
Insp Frost (played by Martin Sword) returns to look into an almost forgotten kidnapping, and perhaps a murder which has never been resolved. However, his efforts are hindered as it becomes clear that he is facing a conspiracy of silence from the villagers.
However, the burden of guilt borne by those living with the terrible secrets of the past is finally resolved in a series of startling revelations, much to the surprise of the inspector, not to mention the audience watching the tense storyline unfold.
The cast also includes Ann Anderson, as Peggy Fletcher, David Griffin, as Sam Fletcher, Maureen Ayres, as Miss Merton, Laura Thornett, as Sarah Fulton, Lynn Davis, as Pamela Fulton, Barry Tinkler, as Bob Marriott and Nigel Peacoco, as Sir Charles Cresswell.
Stage-Door’s production at the Windmill runs from Wednesday (April 18) to Saturday (April 21) next week at 7.30 pm. Tickets, price £10 (concessions are available), are on sale now at the Windmill box office, open daily fro 10am-4pm or telephone 01903 722224.
