Star-studded murder mystery comes to Cornwall

A star-studded murder mystery from an award-winning writing team will keep the audience guessing at the Hall for Cornwall this month.

Rehearsal for Murder features screen heartthrob Gary Mavers of Peak Practice and Casualty fame, alongside Susie Amy who is best known for her role as Chardonnay in the ITV series Footballers’ Wives.

The story follows a playwright who is left heartbroken when his fiancée and leading lady is found dead from an apparent suicide. On the anniversary of the ill-fated night, the writer assembles the same cast and crew in the same theatre for a reading of his new play. But as the reading begins, it becomes clear that he believes that his leading lady was murdered and intends to uncover her killer.

Actress Anita Harris, whose films include the Carry On franchise and 1960s pop-idol Mark Wynter also star in the production, along with Lauren Drummond from Holby City and Ben Nealon from ITV’s award-winning drama Soldier Soldier.

The performance takes place throughout July at The Hall for Cornwall. More details can be found at
