OUR NEXT PRODUCTION: "Love from a Stranger" by Frank Vosper

24-27 January 2018, directed by Pat & Bernard Riley

70 years ago Adel Players came into being as a section of Adel War Memorial Association and to celebrate this milestone we have decided to present again one of the plays we performed in our very first season.  This is “Love From A Stranger”, a rivetting 1930s psychological thriller based on a tale by Agatha Christie.  And guess what?  We’ve beaten the professional theatre to it - there’s a national tour of this very same 1936 play planned for later in 2018!

Cecily Harrington, a hard-up shorthand-typist, wins a large sum of money in a sweepstake.  Excited by her new-found wealth she breaks off her longstanding engagement to her loyal but unimaginative fiancé so she can realise her dreams to travel the world.  However her plans quickly change when she meets Bruce Lovell, a charming American, and after a whirlwind romance she marries him.  Life in their picturesque country cottage seems idyllic, but is Bruce all he seems?   Why will he allow no-one to go down into the cellar that he uses as a dark room?
