Take a pew as Father Brown tracks down The Murderer in the Mirror at Blackpool Grand Theatre in his intriguing new whodunit from Tuesday 22 to Saturday 26 March.

Mild-mannered priest Father Brown always seems to be in the right place at the right time…

if you count always being in the right place for when a murder is committed!

A famous actor is found dead just before the opening of his latest West End production. Intrepid sleuth Father Brown just happens to be watching the dress rehearsal after being invited by the leading actor and is at once on the hunt for answers…

He discovers a shattered mirror in the actor’s dressing room and realises that not everything is as it seems. But if all the possible suspects were on stage at the time, witnessed by Father Brown, who could possibly be the murderer?

Based on the classic mysteries by G K Chesterton, this enthralling new adaptation from John Goodrum offers a colourful array of possible candidates for the hangman’s noose and more twists and turns than Agatha Christie!

John Lyons (hugely familiar to audiences from his 17 years as David Jason’s faithful sidekick, DS George Toolan, in A Touch of Frost) joins us once again to play the gentle gumshoe Father Brown in this latest murderous treat from Rumpus Theatre Company. John’s other memorable TV appearances include Upstairs Downstairs, The Onedin Line, On the Buses, George and Mildred and The Sweeney.

Father Brown – The Murderer in the Mirror starring John Lyons (A Touch of Frost, The Sweeney) is at Blackpool Grand Theatre from Tuesday 22 March to Saturday 26 March 2022. Matinee and evening performances.
