Chris Ellison and Robert Duncan join the cast of Ruth Rendell’s A Judgement in Stone

Sophie Ward and Antony Costa already confirmed for major UK tour of crime thriller.

A Judgement in Stone

Chris Ellison and Robert Duncan will join the cast of The Classic Thriller Theatre Company’s A Judgement in Stone. Ellison is well-loved for his longstanding role as ITV’s DCI Frank Burnside in The Bill and returns to familiar territory as Detective Superintendent Vetch in Ruth Rendell’s story. Robert Duncan, best known as Drop The Dead Donkey’s Gus Hedges, takes on the role of proud patriarch George Coverdale. The production will begin the second leg of its national tour this autumn from Monday 4th September when it opens at the Oxford Playhouse.

Eunice struggles to fit in. When she joins a wealthy family as their housekeeper the very reason for her awkwardness, long hidden and deeply buried, leads inexorably to a terrible tale of murder in cold blood – on Valentine’s Day. Ruth Rendell’s brilliant plot unravels a lifetime of deceit, despair and cover-ups which, when revealed, brings a shocking revelation almost as grizzly as murder itself.

The production is directed by Roy Marsden who is best known as an actor, particularly in his role as Commander Adam Dalgliesh in Anglia TV’s P.D. James series, which he played for 15 years.
