A brand new adaptation of the best-selling novel by Ruth Rendell

Directed by Roy Marsden

Starring Andrew Lancel, Sophie Ward, Mark Wynter. Deborah Grant, Shirley Anne Field, Anthony Costa and Ben Nealon

Building on the phenomenal decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Company, Bill Kenwright presents a new production adapted from one of the most celebrated works of the writer often hailed as the successor to Agatha Christie.

Eunice struggles to fit in. When she joins a wealthy family as their housekeeper the very reason for her awkwardness, long hidden and deeply buried, leads inexorably to a terrible tale of murder in cold blood - on Valentine’s Day. Ruth Rendell’s brilliant plot unravels a lifetime of deceit, despair and cover-ups which, when revealed, brings a shocking revelation almost as grizzly as murder itself.

The star cast includes award winning TV and stage favourite Andrew Lancel best known to TV audiences for his portrayal of villainous business man Frank Foster in Coronation Street and for the role of DI Neil Manson in The Bill.

He is joined by Sophie Ward who played the beautiful, ill-fated love interest of Young Sherlock Holmes and Dr Helen Trent in long-running ITV drama Heartbeat, pop-idol Mark Wynter who since his hit parade days has featured in seven Agatha Christie Company productions, Deborah Grant, who has starred in Not Going Out and Bergerac, movie icon Shirley Anne Field who became an overnight star in the landmark films The Entertainer opposite Sir Laurence Olivier, and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning with Albert Finney, Antony Costa who shot to fame in chart topping boy band Blue and Agatha Christie Company stalwart Ben Nealon whose TV credits include ITV’s award winning drama Soldier Soldier.
