All-star cast for murder thriller at HMT

All-star cast for murder thriller at HMT

Three famed television and stage actresses are to head up the cast of the Agatha Christie classic thriller Go Back for Murder at His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen this autumn.

With innumerable stage and TV credits to their names, the leading ladies include Liza Goddard (BBC’s Bergerac and ITV’s Give Us A Clue), Sophie Ward (BBC’s Land Girls, ITV’s Heartbeat, BBC’s Holby City) and Lysette Anthony (Woody Allen’s Husbands and Wives and BBC’s Three Up, Two Down) once described as the ‘face of the eighties’ by super photographer, David Bailey.

And the men in this murderous tale include three equally well-known actors - Robert Duncan, much-remembered for his role as jargon-spouting chief executive Gus Hedges in Channel 4’s Drop The Dead Donkey; Gary Mavers who smouldered as ITV’s Peak Practices’ medic Andrew Attwood and Ben Nealon, famed for his role as Jeremy Forsyth in the long running ITV drama Soldier, Soldier.

The all-star cast take to the stage at HMT on Monday, September 23 for the week-long run, telling the story of a woman determined to clear the name of her mother who died in prison while serving life for killing her husband but claimed she was innocent in a letter found by her daughter.

Suspects, secrets, and suspense abound in this new production of Go Back for Murder which follows the Agatha Christie Theatre Company’s hugely successful The Hollow, The Unexpected Guest, And Then There Were None, Spider’s Web, Witness for the Prosecution, Verdict, and Murder on the Nile.

The play was adapted by Christie in 1960 from her novel Five Little Pigs, editing out the legendary detective Poirot for the stage version.

Tickets are available online at, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.
