The Cat and the Canary arrives at Leeds Grand Theatre this month!

Who’s ready for a comedy thriller? I am! The Cat and the Canary is set to perfectly combine a whodunit thriller plot with a barrel of laughs.

Building on the phenomenal decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Theatre Company, Bill Kenwright’s Classic Thriller Theatre Company presents their latest chilling whodunit comedy thriller.

The story follows the descendants of Mr. West, whose descendants gather to learn who will inherit his vast wealth… within moments, the heritage hunters turn into prey. Dark secrets are revealed in this twisty turn-y thriller that’s guaranteed to shock and surprise. Who is The Cat? His movements soundless, unnoticeable, and his vengeance swift! Who will feel his horrible grasp next?

The new adaptation of the murder mystery by John Willard, which inspired three classic movie versions, features an all-star cast. International superstar Britt Ekland (The Man with the Golden Gun, The Wicker Man) will star alongside pop sensation Anthony Costa, Tracy Shaw (Coronation Street), Marti Webb (Evita, Tell Me on a Sunday), Gary Webster (Minder), Ben Nealon (Soldier Soldier) and Eric Carte (Bouquet of Barbed Wire).

It’s certainly an impressive cast list which should give the show a sparkling, talented edge.

Don’t miss this classic thriller when it comes to Leeds Grand Theatre from 23rd – 27th November.
