Theatre's new director starts with a taut thriller full of political intrigue
BIJOU Theatre Productions are opening the new 2012/13 season with a new director — former Toads chairman Stephanie Austin.
A spokesman said: "We are also very excited about her choice of play, Revenge, by Robin Hawdon.
"Hawdon is not only a playwright, but also a well known actor and director."
Revenge is a taut, intense thriller and full of intrigue: Bill Crayshaw MP returns from an overseas business trip to hear of the death of his party agent in a car crash.

Shortly afterwards Mary Stewart arrives, a journalist seeking his reaction to the news.
Her line of questioning gradually turns to items which could ruin Bill's political career as well as his personal and business life.
A cat and mouse game between reporter and politician quickly turns into a deadly battle as the evidence mounts – was Bill involved in the accident?
Things are never quite what they seem in this ingenious and gripping thriller as a series of twists and turns builds to an unexpected and surprising conclusion. Audiences will be torn one way and then another. Who is lying? Who is telling the truth?
The spokesman added: "We promise you will be on the edge of your seats until the very last word — but is it the last word"?
Martin Austin and Julie Smith will handle the demanding roles of Bill and Mary."
Revenge runs from Wednesday, October 10, until Saturday, October 13, at The Palace Theatre, Paignton, at 7.30pm each evening.
Tickets cost £11 each, with concessions, and can be obtained from The Palace Theatre Box Office on 01803 665800.
