Creepy comedy thriller The Cat and the Canary will be taking centre stage at The Alexandra to enthral audiences with a chilling murder mystery between 4 – 9 October 2021.
Building on the phenomenal decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Theatre Company, Bill Kenwright’s Classic Thriller Theatre Company (Rehearsal for Murder, Judgement in Stone, The Case of the Frightened Lady and The Lady Vanishes) continues with its latest whodunnit – The Cat and the Canary.
Following its acclaimed opening in Windsor in January 2020 and highly successful spring tour, the production returns to complete its autumn tour, which was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This new adaptation of the murder mystery by John Willard, which inspired three classic movies starring the likes of Bob Hope, Paulette Goddard, Edward Fox, Honor Blackman and Olivia Hussey, will embark on its nationwide tour with an opening performance at Derby Theatre in early September before heading to Birmingham the following month.
