Prepare to be chilled to the bone when a gripping new psychological thriller Blood Runs Deep premieres this autumn, starring ex Blue member Antony Costa.
The chilling new play presented by Break A Leg Productions in association with Bill Elms comes to the Hanover Street venue following a sell-out pilot run at The Unity Theatre last year. The producers are delighted to announce that Antony Costa will star as Greg.
Antony first rose to fame with pop group Blue. During their career the band spanned three number one albums which included the smash hit singles All Rise, One Love and Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word.
Antony has also enjoyed a successful stage career. In 2017 he starred in Bill Kenwright’s UK touring production of Ruth Rendall’s murder mystery, A Judgement in Stone.
On joining the cast, Antony said: “I’m really excited to be part of this brilliant psychological thriller at the Epstein Theatre this Halloween. This script is outstanding, and I can’t wait to get started!”
The full cast also includes Emma Vaudrey as Karen, Brandon McCaffery as Jake, and Alice Merivale as Zoe, who reprise their roles from 2018’s pilot production.
Set in the 1990s, single mother Karen Richards is on the run with her unsuspecting son, praying she can hide their chilling family secret and live a normal life. When an unwelcome visitor arrives at her home, the truth catches up with her, resulting in terrifying consequences.
The two-act thriller, set on a northern council estate, is written by Emma Culshaw and David Paul (The Ruby Slippers, Achy Breaky Bride) and directed by Margaret Connell.
Writers Emma Culshaw and David Paul said: “This psychological thriller deals with ordinary people who find themselves in an extraordinary situation. The greatest threat always comes from within the family but who is actually the prey and who is the perpetrator. Can our deeds be determined by our DNA?”
When the truth surfaces there is no escape!
