A new production of Robin Hawdon's psychological thriller Revenge, presented by the Crime and Comedy Theatre Company, will open at Greenwich Theatre on 6 February before touring nationally.

Revenge tells the story of Bill Crayshaw MP, who is hailed in the corridors of Parliament, lauded in business and loved at home until he returns from a business trip to find his party agent has been killed. Was it a tragic accident, or are the circumstances more sinister? Mary Stewart is determined to find out, but what is her motive? Journalism, blackmail, seduction or… revenge?

The production will be directed by Louise Jameson, with Jonathan McGarrity as Crayshaw and Kate Ashmead as Mary Stewart.

Revenge is produced by Martin Parsons for Crime and Comedy Theatre Company. Lighting design is by Claire Childs, fight direction by Dan Styles and set construction and props by Snugglebean Ltd.
