Thank you to those who persevered with A Recipe for Murder through all 5 instalments, and thank you to the latecomers who feel like they read the last page of a book and now have no reason to read the rest.
After my meeting with Alan Bennett I discussed the possibility of dramatizing the series for the West End, he liked the idea but thought it would be better served as a musical. He put me in touch with Andrew Lloyd Webber and we began auditioning for the roles and then thought, why don’t we just ask the stars themselves?
I then contacted Ina Garten and the crew who were thrilled by the idea, and I can exclusively reveal some rehearsal shots.
