A NEW production of classic play Dangerous Corner, starring Robin of Sherwood's Michael Praed and Dalziel and Pascoe's Colin Buchanan, will be showing at The Regent Theatre in November.

Directed by Michael Attenborough, JB Priestley's first play Dangerous Corner is a timeless classic mystery where a chance remark at a dinner party exposes a world of murder and conspiracy.

All seems well at the Caplan's independent publishing house until a can of worms is unceremoniously ripped open at Robert and Freda Caplan's dinner party.

A chance remark plunges the guests into a re-examination of the mysterious events surrounding the recent death of young Martin Caplan and skeletons come crashing out of the closet in more ways than one.

Known for his iconic portrayal in the classic TV series Robin of Sherwood, Michael Praed's other screen credits include the hit shows Dynasty and Riders.

On stage he recently led the UK tours of High Society, The Sound of Music and An Ideal Husband.

Colin Buchanan is best known for playing DI Pascoe for eleven years in the hit BBC television series Dalziel and Pascoe.

They are joined by a strong ensemble cast that includes Kim Thomson, best known for her role as Faye Lamb in ITV's Emmerdale, and Matt Milne, who starred in Steven Spielberg's movie adaptation of War Horse and is fresh from his onscreen performance as Footman Alfred Nugent in Downton Abbey.

Completing the cast are Lauren Drummond, who has had major roles in the TV dramas Holby City and Waterloo Road, and Finty Williams, whose film credits include Gosford Park and Mrs Brown.

The play runs from Monday, November 17, until Saturday, November 22.

Tickets cost £17 to £32.50 and are available from the box office by calling 0844 871 7649. Alternatively, buy tickets online at www.atgtickets. com/stoke.
