Nigel Fairs is a British actor and writer. He trained at Bretton Hall College and as an actor has worked on television, theatre, radio and film, performing everywhere from the West End to HM Prison Holloway! In 2018 he made his debut at the National Theatre in "Translations" by Brian Friel. On television he appeared in "Unforgotten" Series 3 and will soon be seen in "Silent Witness". As a writer he has had a large number of plays and seven musicals produced.   He has also written over a hundred murder mystery scripts, which are performed throughout the world.

“It's a testament to Nigel Fairs’ central performance and beautifully written script that for the first 20 minutes of this play it’s hard to believe John Haigh could be a murderer... It’s only when he pulls a gun on one of his victims – all played brilliantly by Suzanne Procter – that the audience is introduced to the true monster.”
