If you like a touch of dark comedy with your drama you’re in for a treat as Talking Scarlet return with two productions to bookend the summer season at the Grand Theatre, Blackpool.
The company which brought the highly successful classic drama Dial M for Murder return in July with SWAP! an outrageous new drama.
Swap! is a side-splitting comedy featuring a couple who unknowingly swap houses with a British gangster for the summer. The mess gets bigger and the clean-up gets sillier as ex-girlfriends, twin brothers and dead bodies all start piling up in this hilarious farce written and directed by Return Of The Saint star Ian Ogilvy. Talking Scarlet, whose previous productions at The Grand include Murder With Love and Sherlock Holmes and The Ripper Murders, will also present the chilling drama Jekyll and Hyde in September. Intent on separating the good and evil within a man, Dr. Henry Jekyll creates ‘Hyde’ a monstrous and uncontrollable alter ego in a dramatic new adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic and atmospheric Gothic melodrama.
