Following on from its highly successful appearance in the 2013 Colin McIntyre Classic Thriller Season, THE GENTLE HOOK will return by popular demand to the Theatre Royal Nottingham from Monday 24 February to Saturday 1 March 2014.


This intriguing play, written by Francis Durbridge, tells the story of Stacey Harrison, a woman who seems to have everything in life; charm, intelligence, sophistication and a highly successful career.  But when she kills an intruder in her home, cracks start to appear in her story and a gripping thriller unfolds.

Fans of Nottingham’s Colin McIntyre Classic Thriller Season, now coming up to its 26th consecutive year, will be delighted to see some very familiar faces returning to the Theatre Royal’s stage in this production, including Adrian Lloyd-James (Brad Morris), Susie Telfer (Madge Harrison), Chris Sheridan (Alan Kyle), Angie Smith (Stacey Harrison), Andrew Ryan (Phillip Harrison), Richard Sheridan (Charles Venner), George Telfer (Lennox) and David Gilbrook (Gerald Waddington).

Karen Henson, co-producer of the play and a regular on the Theatre Royal stage herself said, “The Gentle Hook went down a storm when we performed it as part of our Classic Thriller Season last summer, and we can’t wait to bring it back to Nottingham for another week.  Audiences can expect intrigue, suspense and a thrilling finale guaranteed to have them on the edge of their seats!”

The production will be directed by Jeremy Lloyd Thomas and designed by Geoff Gilder.  Lighting design will be by Michael Donoghue and sound design by Wesley Schol.
