Audio Described World Premiere of Closure

Henry and Libby have not seen their eldest daughter in months, so when the family receive an invitation to dinner they’re thrilled. But family can be murder.

Not all is as it seems as this witty, pacey and up-to-the-minute new thriller by Catherine O’Reilly and Tim Churchill at Windsor’s Theatre Royal takes one manic turn after another.

The world premiere of Closure runs until Saturday (March 9th), with an Audio Described performance on Thursday (6th) at 2.30pm.

Secrets, betrayal and sibling rivalries come to a head, as the family are plunged into a nightmare, they are powerless to control, and we are forced to consider the lengths to which we would go to protect the ones we love.

Susan Penhaligon (A Bouquet of Barbed Wire, A Fine Romance) as Libby Kennedy stars, alongside Olivier-nominated Peter Duncan (Flash Gordon) as Henry Kennedy.

They’re joined by Roxanne McKee (Game of Thrones), Joseph Thompson (Slow Horses), Jemma Donovan (Hollyoaks), Christopher Jeffers (A Whole Lifetime with Jamie Demetriou) and Marcus Adolphy (Doctors).

It’s difficult not to give too much away about this thriller as it twists and turns. There’s a murder, although no surprises as to whodunit, underpinning a darker story about trauma and grief, superbly played out by a strong, experienced cast.

Closure is directed by Charlotte Peters, who balances edge-of-the-seat action and surprise revelations with some memorable comic moments as the family tries but fails to lighten the mood – particularly Penhaligon as Libby, whose consumption of alcohol and its predictable affects is a theatrical sight to behold.

Set in an eye-catchingly light and airy front room of a modern country house, with no hint of the dark drama that will unfold, Closure is a highly entertaining thriller worthy of a longer, regional tour run sometime soon.
