Jealousy, passion and revenge are the key emotions in Blood Money which Halifax Thespians bring to the Playhouse from January 19..

Popular TV celebrity Mike Mason presents a daytime programme called “Bargain Basement”.

Both he and his wife Liz enjoy the trappings of success but Mike is not satisfied.

He is a serial adulterer and a string of affairs has left their marriage on the brink of collapse. When both parties find a local doctor who seems to have a solution to their problems they believe a brighter future is possible.

However, all is not as it seems.

They find themselves trapped in a spiral of deceit with murder at the core, but who will live and who will die?

The play is one of several written by The Heather Brothers and was first performed at The Derby Playhouse in 1994.

The play then transferred to The Walnut Theatre in Wilmington, Philadelphia. Director Leighton Hirst, after several weeks rehearsing the play, is looking forward to opening night. “Blood Money” is a thriller acted by a talented quartet - Nick Turner, Melanie Duff, Stevie Leigh Sanderson and Polly Bryan.

Halifax Thespians production of the play runs from Tuesday January 19 until Saturday January 23 at 7.30 p.m. with a matinee on Saturday at 2.30 pm.
