Revenge En Suite

by Jack Sadleir

A comedy thriller with a literary twist


 

 

Set in a hotel on the south coast of England in the mid 1920’s. Cast includes Open Space and RoughCast favourites

It is 1925, and renowned crimewriter Audrey Dobbs is in love with Lord Basil Bouncy, the aristocratic detective she has created. But when she is persuaded to develop his relationship with another of her characters – the brilliant novelist Lydia Tempest – things begin to go horribly wrong, and her attempts to deal with the situation by hasty re-writing lead to disaster. Set in a hydro hotel on the South Coast, Revenge en Suite is a delightful comedy thriller with a literary twist, and features a colourful cast of eccentric characters. But who is actually writing the plot..?

Directed by Cathy Gill
