John, who played David Jason’s sidekick in the long-running TV series, takes centre stage in a murder-mystery drama at the Pomegranate Theatre, Chesterfield, from July 27 to 29, 2021.

Produced by Rumpus Theatre Company, Father Brown – The Murderer in the Mirror has more twists than an Agatha Christie thriller.

The drama unfolds as a famous actor is found dead just before the opening of a West End production, Father Brown, who is invited to watch the dress rehearsal, sees a shattered dressing room mirror and wonders who the killer is when all possible suspects were on stage.
