Frederick Knott’s thriller Wait Until Dark, first staged in 1966, is a piece of theatrical history. Whether it should be taken off the shelf, have the dust blown off it and staged again 50 years later is another question.

In his play The Real Thing, Tom Stoppard has a touch of the Luigi Pirandello’s. The Italian dramatist, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1936, liked to draw his audiences up the garden path. His characters have multiple accounts of who they are or what has happened to them. We wait on the edge of our seats to find out the truth, only to be told, finally, that there is no truth, it is all a matter of perception. “You decide”.

The Producers opens in Stevenage this week with a West End cast. We spoke to Paul Easom and Ryan Owen who star in the Gordon Craig Theatre’s production of the Mel Brooks musical.
