Inspector Morse play in Bungay
PUBLISHED: 06:35 24 April 2015
There will be a treat for Inspector Morse fans as a play about the fictional detective, made famous by late John Thaw on television, makes its way to Bungay.
The national tour of House of Ghosts, by Alma Cullen - who wrote several episodes for the television show - is inspired by the original novels by Colin Dexter.
The audience will see Morse, played by Nigel Fairs, investigate the death of a actress at a performance he is attending. The plot goes back to Morse’s student-life in Oxford, re-uniting him with ghosts from his past, giving the audience an insight into the events which shaped the inspector’s later life.
The production will use the stage to create a range of locations as the murder mystery unfolds.
Claire Bibby, producer of the show, said: “House of Ghosts is the only Inspector Morse story written for the stage, so I’m thrilled to be granted the opportunity to tour it. This production is set in the 1980s, Morse is in his late forties and is still developing his persona and traits at this stage of his life.”
The play will be performed at the Fisher Theatre on May 1 and May 2 from 7.30pm.
Tickets are £12 for adults, £10 for concessions and £9 for groups of ten or more and are available from the box office on 01986 897130 or visit www.fishertheatre.org.
