Death In High Heels (theatre)

A 1930s period thriller is to be the last play in Seaford Little Theatre's 2013 season. Written by Richard Harris (Stepping Out, Dead Guilty), Death in High Heels is based on Christianna Brand's debut crime novel of the same name, the first of her Inspector Charlesworth Mysteries. Tickets are on sale from Stitch in Seaford High Street from today and SLT tickets usually sell quickly so don't miss out!

It's a big day at Christophe et Cie, a small couture house off Regent Street. Mr Bevan will announce which of his staff he is sending to France to be general manager of a new branch in Deauville. Will it be the talented and elegant Miss Doon or the loyal and long-serving Miss Gregory? Perhaps senior saleswoman Irene or showroom manager Dorian will get the job. Events take a dramatic turn over a lunch of rabbit curry when Miss Doon collapses and dies, poisoned by the oxalic acid crystals that another employee, Rachel, has been using to clean her hat.

Directed by Angie James (The Titfield Thunderbolt), Death In High Heels will star Tricia Pape (Pack Of Lies), Steve Wetherilt, Jenny Humphries (TTT), Ann Mabey, Lee Powney (TTT), Susanne Crosby, Clare Forshaw, Helena Bell, Rob McLaren and Kay Wetherilt. Angie has also designed the set which, judging from the previous three SLT productions I have seen, will be fabulous!

Matinee Sat 9th Nov, 14:30. No performances Sun and Mon.
Tickets available in person from Stitch, 13 Broad Street, Seaford, or on the door if there are any left.
