Bill Kenwright Productions presents, Edgar Wallace’s The Case Of The Frightened Lady at Leeds Grand Theatre from Monday 23 to Saturday 28 July 2018.
Revered as one of the most popular and prolific crime writers of the 20th Century and the brains behind the iconic film, King Kong, Edgar Wallace’s gripping page-turners are regarded as the bedrock of the modern thriller. The Case Of The Frightened Lady remains one of his most celebrated works.
Directed by Roy Marsden, best known for his role as Commander Adam Dalgliesh in ITV’s P.D.

Joining them is Deborah Grant from Not Going Out and Bergerac; Philip Lowrie, best known for playing Dennis Tanner in Coronation Street; April Pearson, star of award-winning drama Skins; Agatha Christie Company stalwart Ben Nealon from the popular series Soldier Soldier, and Glenn Carter, widely recognised as the definitive Jesus in the hit musical and film of Jesus Christ Superstar. The cast is completed by Callum Coates, Owen Oldroyd and Rosie Thomson.

The household is controlled by the family physician, the footmen behave more like guests than servants and the secretary Isla is afraid for her life. As Tanner moves closer to the heart of the mystery he uncovers a shocking and closely guarded secret…
