MIRFIELD’S John Cohen directs Halifax Thespians next week in an ingenious thriller by Brian Clemens, the man responsible for creating TV hits The Avengers and The Professionals.

John is an experienced actor who has played for a number of companies in the region including Huddersfield Thespians.

His cast next week includes Maria Peters who has also appeared on stage on a regular basis at the Lawrence Batley Theatre.

The production of Inside Job opens at the Playhouse in Halifax on Tuesday (January 18) where it runs all week.

The show revolves around three killers, three bombs and three motives.

The play is full of twists and turns culminating in a nail biting finish.

Leighton Hirst, another name familiar to Huddersfield theatre fans as a regular director with Huddersfield Thespians, is using his skills on the show’s production.

He says it is the most complex set that he has built but the finished product should provide the perfect setting for this ingenious thriller.
