FOLLOWING the dramatic success of their autumn production,

The Wisbech Players will be presenting The Woman in White at the Angles Theatre, Wisbech from Tuesday March 6.

The play adapted by Constance Cox from the 19th century novel by Wilkie Collins tells the story of Sir Percival Glyde, who is being hounded for money by the sinister Count Fosco, and marries heiress Laura Fairlie for her fortune.

As events unfold, Glyde’s efforts to secure the money and also to remove the threat to his reputation posed by the unfortunate Anne Catherick, become more desperate and cruel.

Combined with this tale of disturbing intrigue are elements of romance and comedy: the resulting heady mix is guaranteed to keep all entertained.

The Deep Blue Sea, the Players autumn production has been awarded the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (Eastern Region) Best Technical Production for 2011 and has been nominated for the Best Play Award 2011.

Performances of the Woman in White, which runs until Saturday, begin at 7.30pm, except for Thursday at 8.30pm.

Tickets at £10.00 and £9.00 concessions are now available from The Angles theatre box office – 01945 474447. For on-line bookings – go to
