Stone Cold Murders at the Buxton Opera House

Stone Cold Murders - By James Cawood

Starring Nick Barclay and Freya Copeland.

A tense thriller set in deep winter in the English Lake District. Olivia and Robert, owners of the Langstrath Country House Hotel, are enjoying the success of their first season and the respite of the winter break when their solitude is disrupted by the appearance of Ramsay, a lost climber looking for shelter. As the evening unfolds, it becomes apparent that Ramsay’s presence in this desolate spot is anything but a coincidence, and soon events take a murderous turn.

In conjunction with the Buxton Opera House we can offer you the best seats for Stone Cold Murders at the Buxton Opera House on the 15th – 18th April 2015.

Book tickets for the show, plus an overnight stay with pre or post show dinner. Relax in one of our unique bedrooms overnight and wake up to an award winning full English breakfast.
