Deceptions at the New Theatre, Cardiff     

Deceptions at the New Theatre, Cardiff Michelle Collins and Rupert Hill star in the gripping thriller Deceptions which is at the New Theatre, Cardiff from Tuesday 21 – Saturday 25 July as part of a limited national tour.

Acclaimed writer Paul Wheeler’s new play is the ultimate mind game in a world where deception is the ruling force. Psychiatrist Julia Smythe is starting to believe there are no longer any interesting cases in her field of work; things appear to be no different when Adrian Wainwright makes an appointment seeking another quick fix.

What results from their sessions is a battle of wills, played out in stylish and witty banter, as each of them tries to take charge of the situation. As secrets are revealed a psychological game of cat and mouse begins, taking them on a journey that threatens to spiral beyond their control.

One of the country’s best loved soap baddies, Michelle Collins stars alongside Coronation Street star Rupert Hill (Jamie Baldwin). Perhaps best known for her role as the conniving Cindy Beale in EastEnders, Michelle has also appeared in Rock Rivals, Sunburn and the award-winning 2000 Acres of Sky.
