Deadly go­ings-on in a thrilling Coli­seum play

Oldham Advertiser - - WHAT'S ON -

DIS­COVER The Busi­ness Of Mur­der, Richard Har­ris’ ac­claimed psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller, when it comes to Old­ham Coli­seum this week.

In the play, which had a nine-year run in Lon­don’s West End, Stone, a hu­mour­less and dour man, in­vites Dee, a tele­vi­sion play­wright, over to his flat on the premise of dis­cussing a script.

Once there, she is sur­prised when Su­per­in­ten­dent Hal­lett, the man with whom she is hav­ing an af­fair, also ar­rives for an en­tirely dif­fer­ent rea­son.

Noth­ing is as it seems, and as the plot twists and turns, Stone’s mo­tive grad­u­ally be­comes clear.

They are all, it would seem, in the same busi­ness... mur­der.

The Busi­ness of Mur­der stars Robert Gwilym, known for his role as Dr Max Gal­lagher in Casualty, Paul Opacic, a regular in Bad Girls, Em­merdale and Hol­lyoaks, and Joanna Hig­son, who played Max­ine Donnelly for two se­ries’ of Shame­less.
