THE BIG KILLING

Written by Philip Mackie

Directed by Donald MacKechnie

Ian McKellen in the role of Gavin Cole

Arts Theatre, Ipswich, Suffolk

22 October 1962 - 3 November 1962

 

Words from Ian McKellen

Another miserably- written “comedy thriller”, which made the cast laugh more than the audience and which thrilled no-one.

Comments and Reviews

Producer Robert Chetwyn wrote in the programme for the previous production:

"The next play is "THE BIG KILLING", a thriller as the title suggests. Tense and completely gripping, it also has some lighter moments. It has recently completed a successful run in London and it is the first production in Ipswich by Donald MacKechnie who has until recently been running the Summer Theatre in Sheringham."
