Former Sixth Doctor Colin Baker will be treading the boards at the Lichfield Garrick Theatre in a new adaptation of Victorian thriller The Woman in White.
Colin will be joined onstage by Peter Amory, who played Chris Tate in Emmerdale, and Karen Ford who will be remembered as art teacher Miss Booth in Grange Hill.
The play, based on the epistolary novel written by Wilkie Collins, is considered one of the early examples of a mystery novel.
The story concerns, Walter Hartright, a handsome teacher, who is assailed by the Woman in White on a London road at midnight where she pleads with him for his help to prevent her from being taken to an asylum. She disappears just as suddenly as she appears, but this first unsettling encounter is the beginning of a long journey which takes Walter to the darkest continents of his heart.
Tickets start at £15 and can be booked online at www.lichfieldgarrick.com or by calling the box office on 01543 412121.
