UK tour of classic thriller visits Birmingham's Alexandra Theatre

Building on the phenomenal decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Theatre Company, Bill Kenwright’s Classic Thriller Theatre Company continues with its latest whodunnit - The Cat and the Canary.

Following its acclaimed opening in Windsor in January 2020 and highly successful spring tour, the production returns to complete its Autumn tour, which was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This new adaptation of the murder mystery by John Willard, which inspired three classic movies starring the likes of Bob Hope, Honor Blackman and Olivia Hussey, will embark on a nationwide tour, opening at Birmingham's Alexandra Theatre on October 4th.

Twenty years after the death of Mr. West, his descendants gather to learn who will inherit his vast wealth and the hidden family jewels. Within moments, the heritage hunters turn into prey. Walls crack open, shadows loom and dark secrets are revealed.

Antony Costa will be starring alongside silver screen legend, Britt Ekland who is returning to the production. Her numerous films include The Man with The Golden Gun with Roger Moore, The Wicker Man with Christopher Lee and Get Carter with Michael Caine.

Joining them will be Tracy Shaw, best known for her long-running role as Maxine Peacock in Coronation Street; West End leading lady, Marti Webb whose credits include Evita and Tell Me on A Sunday; Gary Webster, who played Gary Costello in Family Affairs and Ray Daley who starred opposite George Cole in ITV’s Minder.
