'Dead Guilty' Comes To The Players Theatre In Hurstpierpoint

‘Dead Guilty’ Comes To The Players Theatre In Hurstpierpoint

Coming up soon from Hurstpierpoint Players is a tense psychological study of guilt and obsession by the author of The Business of Murder.

Dead Guilty concerns an attractive young graphic artist whose leg is badly injured in a car crash that occurred when a business associate suffered a fatal heart attack at the wheel. Housebound and depressed, Julia is tormented when things disappear, a Mexican orange blossom materialises on her shambling Victorian terrace and someone prowls around upstairs at night

While a kindly counsellor contends with Julia’s suicidal tendencies and a besotted handyman helps around the house and garden, the excessively solicitous widow of the dead man comes into Julia’s life. Suspense builds throughout the play and one is constantly on the edge of one’s seat wondering how it will all end.

  • The play runs from 10th April until the 14th April.
  • Curtain up at 8pm and doors open at 7.30pm.

Tickets are on sale now and are available online from www.hurstplayers.org.uk at £10 on Tuesday and Wednesday and £11 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
