Theatre North West steps into a mystery with The Clockmaker.
This is the third production during the professional theatre company's 2011/12 season and it detours from the comedy beat to venture into part love story, part mystery, thriller and jigsaw puzzle that keeps the audience guessing right until the very end.
Humble clockmaker, Heinrich Mann, played by Bruce McKay, is surrounded in mystery when he is accused of some wrong doing. Frieda, a soft-spoken young woman played by Lucy Hill, then finds her way into his shop bringing in a shattered cuckoo clock and leaving with Heinrich's heart.
Theatre North West presents The Clockmaker at the Parkhill Centre from Feb. 9 to 26.
