This Halloween the acclaimed new psychological thriller, Blood Runs Deep will premiere at the Epstein Theatre. Starring ex-Blue member Antony Costa, this gripping production returns following its sell-out pilot at the Unity Theatre in 2018.

Guaranteed to have audiences on the edge of their seats.

Set on a northern council estate in the 1990s, single mother Karen Richards is on the run with her unsuspecting son, praying she can conceal their chilling family secret and live a normal life. But when an unwelcome visitor arrives at her home, the truth catches up with her, and there is no escape.

Guaranteed to have audiences on the edge of their seats, Blood Runs Deep is edgy and loaded with suspense. The two-act thriller is written by Emma Culshaw and David Paul (The Ruby Slippers, Achy Breaky Bride) and directed by Margaret Connell (Scouse a Comedy of Errors, Broken Biscuits).

Blood Runs Deep stars Antony Costa as Greg. Costa first rose to fame as a member of boy band Blue. During their career the band spanned three number one albums which included the smash hit singles ‘All Rise’, ‘One Love’ and ‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’. Since his days with Blue, Costa has enjoyed a successful stage career. In 2017 he starred in Bill Kenwright’s UK touring production of Ruth Rendall’s murder mystery, A Judgement in Stone.

The full cast also includes Emma Vaudrey as Karen, Brandon McCaffery as Jake, and Alice Merivale as Zoe, who reprise their roles from 2018’s pilot production.

The production is presented by Break A Leg Productions in association with Bill Elms.
