Cast of Night Must Fall

Thriller Revived

A pre-war box-office smash hit is about to take Deal by storm when The Guild Players revive a classic thriller. The original script of Night Must Fall by Emlyn Williams will come alive on The Kilshawe Theatre stage next week.

Nathan was the Star

Despite the hot and steamy night, I spent an enjoyable evening at The Kilshawe Theatre, Deal, watching The Guild Players presentation of Night Must Fall by Emlyn Williams. There is no doubt that the star of the evening was Nathan Sewell as baby-faced Dan – he was both frightening and frightened and utterly convincing. The play started rather slowly but was lifted as soon as Gill Watson, playing Mrs. Terence, entered. She is obviously an excellent actress and made the very most of the part. Lei Cobb made a credible debut as the carping Mrs. Bramson. Justine Piner’s portrayal of the young gentlewoman, Olivia Grayne, forced to serve as companion to her beastly aunt, was well done. Her acting in the last scene was particularly impressive. Roz Turner as the maid Dora was well cast – she was pert and pretty. Dick Turner, Justin Ramsey, Peter Ryder and Stephanie Walmsley played other parts. The play was efficiently directed by Christopher Sewell and produced by Paul Rutterford supported by a large and competent front of house and backstage crew.
