Stars of stage, screen and television will appear in a nail-biter of a play in Stevenage next week.

Ladies in Retirement, written by Edward Percy and Reginald Denham, opens at the Gordon Craig Theatre tomorrow (Monday) and runs until Wednesday, March 26.

Directed by Ian Dickens, the play stars Coronation Street heartthrob Oliver Mellor, Kim Taylforth from Bad Girls and London’s Burning, and respected stage and television actress Karen Ford, whose credits include Grange Hill.

The production also features special guest star Shirley Anne Field, the iconic film and television actress.

Ladies in Retirement is a nail-biting Victorian melodrama with thrilling twists and a taut plot that will keep audience members on the edge of their seats throughout.

Set in the 1880s and based on a famous murder that took place in a remote country house, the play promises an evening filled with suspense, eerie mystery and excitement.

This new show from ID Plays Ltd follows the great success of the recent critically-acclaimed productions of The Pickwick Papers and Murdered to Death.

Performances are on Monday, March 24 to Wednesday, March 26 at 7.45pm, with a 2.30pm matinee performance on the Wednesday.
