Catherine Cookson's The Cinder Path, a sizzling and fast-paced drama, set against the backdrop of the First World War, featuring Nick Cochrane (Coronation Street's Andy McDonald) as Ginger Slater.

It's a tale of an innocent witness to murder who tries to set old injustices right.

Spa Pavilion Theatre director, Ray Anderson, said: "Customers have asked us for more variety, and this is real theatre at its very best. It's filled with laughter, tears and an unforgettable musical score. We are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming Nick and the rest of the cast to perform in Felixstowe on Tuesday February 11 at 3pm."
