Theatre Preview: Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime, 22 – 27 February, King’s Theatre, Edinburgh‏

18 Jan

Lee Mead, winner of the BBC’s hit show Any Dream Will Do, makes his drama debut starring in Bill Kenwright’s production of Oscar Wilde’s Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime, which appears at the King’s Theatre in Edinburgh from Monday 22 to Saturday 27 February.

Lord Arthur Savile is deliriously happy: a pillar of Victorian society on the verge of marriage to the lovely Sybil Merton, when a brief departure from late Nineteenth century convention leads him to an encounter with a chilling clairvoyant called Podgers.

Podgers secretly reveals that at some point in Arthur’s life, he is destined to commit murder. To protect his future wife, Arthur decides he must commit this bloody deed before he marries.

As he searched for the most convenient person to sacrifice, chaos ensues in this highly entertaining comedy of upper-class morality.

Mead joins an all star cast for the tour, including Gary Wilmot, the glamorous Kate O’Mara, David Ross, who recently starred in the BBC hit sitcom The Green Green Grass and Derren Nesbitt, best known for his role as Chief Inspector Jordan in the television series Special Branch and as the Gestapo Officer Major von Happen in film classic Where Eagles Dare, who will be playing the role of Herr Frederick Winkelkopf.
