WhatsOnStage logo
Ian Dickens Productions International Ltd present Jack Popplewell’s comedy thriller Busybody starring Tracy Shaw (pictured) who captured the public’s interest in Coronation Street as Maxine Peacock; Peter Amory, best known for his role as the infamous businessman Chris Tate in Emmerdale; two time British Soap Award winner Gemma Bissix (EastEnders and Hollyoaks); Paul David-Gough who plays the recurring character J.D. in Coronation Street; and Michelle Morris (Jess Haworth in The Knock).

Busybody centres on a meddlesome cleaning woman who keeps telling the cops how to mind their business and who steps forward with the right evidence in every pinch.

She lives in the basement of the office building she cleans and one night finds a body. By the time the police arrive, there is no body and no evidence. The wrong alarms are sent out, murdered men turn up alive, and the whole thing is chalked up to the cleaning woman’s imagination until an unidentified body is discovered on a distant hill and the cleaning woman uncovers more evidence in the course of her duties. Is the company owner staging his own murder? Or did he kill his wife’s lover? Is the lover a firm employee or someone else? Where do the two female assistants fit in? What is the wife withholding?

Busbody is directed by Andrew Lynford and runs at the Blackpool Grand from 20 - 25 June.
