Blackpool News / Culture / Theatres & Shows Dangerous Obsession at Grand Theatre Blackpool 22 August 2019 by Visit Blackpool Having recently presented a critically acclaimed UK tour and West End Run of Anthony Horowitz’s psychological thriller Mindgame, Angela Browne Ltd are proud to announce a brand new tour of N.J. Crisp’s classic thriller Dangerous Obsession - direct from the Nottingham Theatre Royal Classic Thriller season. A sunny afternoon . . . Sally Driscoll waters the plants in the conservatory of her luxurious home. It's a peaceful scene until John Barrett unexpectedly appears - and he’s not selling double glazing. What did happen in Torquay? Will Sally and husband Mark ever feel safe in their own home again? Dangerously obsessed, Barrett strips away the conflicting secrets of the Driscoll’s apparently perfect lives until nothing is left in this compulsive psycho-thriller by a master of the genre. Norman James Crisp, known as a writer only by his initials and surname, N. J. Crisp, was a prolific British television writer, dramatist and novelist. In the sixties after writing some single dramas, Crisp moved to writing for serials and turned out scripts for many BBC series. In 1968, he co-created The Expert, a serial about a forensic scientist, with Gerard Glaister, the Producer. In 1972 the pair repeated the act with the boardroom drama The Brothers. His 1996 play That Good Night starred Donald Sinden, Nigel Davenport, Lucy Fleming, Patrick Ryecart and Julie-Kate Olivier and was directed by Edward Hall. Crisp's 1987 psychological thriller Dangerous Obsession was filmed in 1999 as Darkness Falls and starred Ray Winstone, Tim Dutton and Sherilyn Fenn.
