A former Hollyoaks star and an ex-Coronation Street favourite will be appearing on stage in Stevenage later this week.

Zoe Lister, who played Zoe Carpenter in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks, and Scott Wright, best known for his role as Sam Kingston in Corrie, will appear in Shady Business at the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage.

Talking Scarlet’s production of Robin Hawdon’s side-splitting farce runs from Thursday, May 29 to Saturday May 31, with evening performances at 7.45pm, and a matinee on the Saturday at 2.30pm.

The play also stars David Callister.

Mandy and Tania are sexy but struggling nightclub dancers living in the heart of London’s Soho nightlife, and they face a crisis.

Will possessive club owner Big Mack find out about Mandy’s affair with Gerry and set his sidekicks on them?

Will he discover that he is owed money that was borrowed from the club’s till, gambled and lost on the club’s roulette table and then stolen from the day’s take?

Will Gerry be discovered hiding in Mandy’s bathroom? Will Terry be caught delivering dinner? Will Terry reveal that he is really Gerry and that Gerry is Terry?

Will anyone figure out what is going on, and will they all survive until the curtain comes down?
