Ghostly thriller Snake in the Grass looks deep into the life of a troubled family

A GHOSTLY thriller from the pen of award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn takes to the stage next week.

Snake in the Grass looks deeply into family life and subtly explores many issues that affect many families today.

The play tells of how two sisters, torn apart by family life during their childhoods, are reunited by their father’s death. Miriam has cared for her father during his last few years with the help of a nurse, Alice.

After hearing about her father’s death, Annabel returns to England, after thirty years in Tasmania, to find she’s been left with most of her father’s fortune after a mysterious change to his will in his final days.

In search of her sister, she finds Alice, who insists that Miriam had wrongfully dismissed her, which is only the start of the many twists in the tale.

Snake in the Grass will be performed at the Riverhead Theatre in Louth from Monday, November 7, to Saturday, November 12.

Tickets are available from the box office on 01507 600350.
