Prepare to be chilled to the bone when a gripping new psychological thriller Blood Runs Deep premieres at The Epstein Theatre 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 from Tuesday 29 October – Saturday 2 November following a sell-out pilot run at The Unity Theatre last year.
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.
His other stage credits include Save the Last Dance; the West End production of Blood Brothers; the 10th Anniversary tour of Boogie Nights; the 40th Anniversary of The Who’s iconic musical Tommy (Blackpool Opera House); and most recently, as Stacee Jaxx in the UK tour of Rock of Ages.
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 (Scouse a Comedy of Terrors, Broken Biscuits)
The play is produced by Break A Leg Productions in association with theatre producer Bill Elms. This is their second collaboration after the acclaimed comedy drama The Ruby Slippers.
When the truth surfaces there is no escape!
