“We have a bickering married couple at the centre of this play,” said Nick Turner, the director.

“The wife is a soap actress, flamboyant and larger than life, the husband, is envious of her. It’s a case of who will murder who first.

"But nothing is as it seems, there are red herrings, tense moments and comedy too.

“The set will be dark with primary colours and lighting to bring out the atmosphere. It should look very dramatic.
