Producing Company: Theatre Alibi with Oxford Playhouse and Exeter Northcott
It's great to be working with Theatre Alibi again, and co-producing this brand new show. The script is already in great shape and staging the Blitz, a séance and daring escapes will be an exciting challenge! A must-see if you enjoyed Brief Encounter or Dial M for Murder.

The Ministry of Fear
By Graham Greene, Adapted by Daniel Jamieson
When Arthur Rowe bumbles into a garden fête during the Blitz he's haunted by his past and innocent of his future. But from the moment he enters Mrs Bellair's fortune teller's tent he trips into a hell of corruption and betrayal where he's way, way out of his depth.
With a powerful whiff of Hitchcock and echoes of film noir classic The Third Man, The Ministry of Fear is both a taut espionage thriller and unnerving portrait of a mind in free fall. Renowned for creating exciting and imaginative work, Theatre Alibi brings its unique style to Graham Greene's surreal masterpiece. The Ministry of Fear follows the Playhouse's highly successful co-production with Theatre Alibi on Michael Frayn's Spies.
[Theatre Alibi are] one of Britain's most inventive companies. Guardian
