Denis Lill to star in comedy horror The Mummy

Get ready for the UK tour of all new comedy horror The Mummy, which is (very loosely) based on Bram Stoker’s Jewel of the Seven Stars, adapted for stage by Jack Milner.

The Mummy will be directed by Agatha Christie Theatre Company regular Joe Harmston, who will once again be working with TV and stage star Denis Lill (Survivors, The Royal, Outside Edge, Only Fools and Horses). Also joining the cast are Jason Durr (Heartbeat) and Susie Amy (Footballers’ Wives).

In deepest, darkest Egypt, an ancient curse is bringing a terrifying creature back into life. Meanwhile, fate throws together a handsome lawyer, a beautiful heiress and a 5,000-year-old man seeking his long lost ancient love. The Mummy is a gloriously silly romp that mixes innovative staging with special effects, magic, sleight of hand and even seven-fingered hands! It’s an hilarious cross between The Woman in Black and The 39 Steps via Hammer House of Horror and The Morecambe and Wise Show.

The Mummy launches on a major UK tour at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry on Friday 21st March.

Joe Harmston is Associate Creative Director at the Belgrade Theatre and was nominated Best Director in the 2012 TMA Awards for his production there of The Father.
