Father Brown is now on stage for a 'murderous treat' near you

Father Brown is on another sleuthing mission and this time the murder he is called to investigate takes place on stage. A new whodunnit based on the popular novel and TV character is coming to Windsor, as part of a national tour.

Theatre Royal Windsor is hosting Father Brown: The Murderer In The Mirror, this week promising to bewilder the audience with more twists and turns than Agatha Christie. The colourful array of possible candidates for the hangman’s noose will put to test the mild-mannered priest's ability to find the culprit in the most baffling of mysteries.

When a famous actor is found dead just before the opening of his latest West End production, Father Brown - invited by the leading actor to watch the dress rehearsal - sees at once in the shattered dressing room mirror that all is not as it seems. And if all the possible suspects were on stage at the time, watched by Father Brown, who could possibly be the murderer?

Father Brown is played by John Lyons, who has 17 years under his belt as DS George Toolan, David Jason’s sidekick in A Touch of Frost. The actor's autobiography "Not Just George", which follows his story from panto to the small and big screen, was released last year.
