Montage of plays performed in Nantwich Theatre

Vintage Hitchcock!

Fri 22 November 2019Vintage Hitchcock!

Nantwich Players Award winning Studio team are back with a fantastic Radio play ‘Vintage Hitchcock’ following the success of last year’s offering, ‘It’s a Wonderful life – the radio play’ This time, Spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a 1940s radio broadcast of the master of suspense's earlier films. Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is a triple feature, complete with vintage commercials, that recreates a daring train chase, a serial killer's ominous presence, and a devastating explosion through the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring. A wonderful nostalgic and exciting retelling of three of Alfred Hitchcock’s most famous stories — The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog (1927), Sabotage (1936), and The 39 Steps (1935)— in the style of an old-time radio broadcast. Complete with sound effects and vintage commercials, all performed live onstage, it will take you back to the 1940’s, and, as it’s narrator announces eerily at the beginning, will ‘put murder back in the home- where it belongs’. So, relax, lean back and enjoy yourself. "Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is not the usual stage show -- it's better! It causes you to use your imagination instead of having every nuance of the performance laid out for you. What's more it's fun!" “A slick, suspenseful and altogether fun night out.” “Vintage Hitchcock is booming good fun” Vintage Hitchcock is presented by the NP Studio team and performances will be at 7.45pm on 20th – 22nd December 2019. Tickets priced at £7.00 will be on sale from Nantwich Tourist Office (01270 600727) or on-line at www.nantwichplayers.com from Tuesday 28th November 2019 at 9am.
