Rehearsal for Murder at Leeds Grand

From the creators of Murder She Wrote and Columbo comes a classic murder mystery.

From the pen of award-winning writing team Richard Levinson and William Link, the creators of the unsurpassable mystery series Murder She Wrote and TV detective series Columbo, comes a classic whodunnit murder mystery. Rehearsal for Murder opens at Leeds Grand Theatre on Monday July 4th, for one week only.

Playwright Alex Dennison is left heartbroken when his fiancée and leading lady Monica Welles is found dead from an apparent suicide after the opening night of her stage debut. On the anniversary of that ill-fated night, Alex assembles the same cast and crew in the same theatre, for a reading of his new play. But as the reading progresses, the play’s similarity to actual events becomes increasingly uncomfortable for the participants, and it soon becomes clear that Alex believes Monica was murdered and his new play is a devious cat-and-mouse chase to uncover her killer.

Following the decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Theatre Company, Bill Kenwright Ltd began an exciting new chapter in January this year with the launch of The Classic Thriller Theatre Company and its first production Rehearsal For Murder, adapted for the stage by David Rogers.

TV favourites Alex Ferns and Susie May join a cast of much-loved Agatha Christie Theatre Company regulars including Gary Mavers and Sixties pop legend Mark Wynter.

Rehearsal for Murder is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Monday 4th to Saturday 9th July. Tickets are on sale now priced from £22 to £36. Book online at or call box office on 0844 848 2700.
