Blog- Psychological thriller coming to Theatre Severn
04 Sep 2019
by Rebecca Dutton

We’re getting very excited about next week’s production of Dangerous Obsession at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn.

Written by N.J.Crisp, the brand new tour debuts in the county town from Monday to Wednesday. 

The play comes direct from the Nottingham Theatre Royal Classic Thriller Season and is produced by Angela Browne Ltd, who recently presented a UK tour and West End Run of Anthony Horowitz’s psychological thriller Mindgame.

Dangerous Obsession begins on a sunny afternoon as Sally Driscoll waters the plants in the conservatory of her luxurious home.

It’s a peaceful scene… until John Barrett unexpectedly appears – and he’s not selling double glazing. What did happen in Torquay? Will Sally and husband Mark ever feel safe in their own home again? Dangerously obsessed, Barrett strips away the conflicting secrets of the Driscoll’s apparently perfect lives until nothing is left.

Crisp’s Dangerous Obsession was written in 1987 but filmed in 1999 as Darkness Falls,  starring Ray Winstone, Tim Dutton and Sherilyn Fenn.

The performance starts at 7.30pm Monday to Wednesday. There is also a matinee performance on Wednesday at 2.30pm.
