Corrie hunks Star on Stage in Dark Thriller

Jack Ellis, who played Harry Mason in Coronation Street...

... and Oliver Mellor, who played Dr Matt Carter...

...are both starring on stage together in Eastbourne.

The actors are starring in a thriller called Wait Until Dark which is set amidst the social turbulence of 60’s London. The play follows the story of Suzy, a blind woman who left alone in her apartment becomes embroiled with a group of conmen hatching an elaborate scam. As the tension notches up, Suzy is left to fend for herself but with the phone line cut dead and the house plunged into darkness, can Suzy outwit the murderous visitors?

Wait Until Dark, made into a film starring Audrey Hepburn in 1967, is often ranked as one of the top 100 scariest films of all time and this exciting new production reclaims it for the stage.

Speaking of Harry Mason, though, I can't let the blog post end without adding the best song, ever, to come out of Coronation Street. Yes, it's Vernon Tomlin singing (Don't fall into) the Mason's Arms" to Liz McDonald.  And a one, a two, a one, two, three...

It's here (sadly I can't pop it onto the blog embedding has been disabled)
