Rehearsals for Mindgame

Audiences coming to see a show at The Playhouse Theatre in Northampton can put their wits against a TV mastermind.

Mindgame will be staged from Tuesday to Saturday October 18 to 22 and has been written by Anthony Horowitz.

He is better known for his TV series Foyles War and Midsummer Murders but throughout his long career has produced work with a comic edge, Murder most Horrid and Horowitz Horror.

This show combines jet black comedy and macabre horror, which should keep you guessing till the very end game.

Writer of true crime fiction Mark Styler is visiting Fairfields Hospital to interview the notorious serial killer Easterman but Dr.Farqhuar, head of the hospital, seems unhelpful and quixotic. Styler finds the place hostile and unnerving.

It starts at 7.30pm for each day of the five night run.

Tickets are available from ww.masquetheatre.co.uk, by phone on 07586 288793 or in person from St. Giles Music, 16 St. Giles Terrace, Northampton
