Murdered to Death

by Peter Gordon

This hilarious spoof of the best of Agatha Christie traditions is set in a country manor house in the 1930's, with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight. The play introduces the inept and bungling Inspector Pratt, who battles against the odds to solve the murder of the house's owner. It soon becomes clear that the murderer isn't finished yet, but will the miscreant be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will the audience die laughing first?

So we have the inept police inspector, his put-upon assistant, a retired army officer and his at-the-end-of-her-tether wife, a butler with a taste for his employers’ cellar contents, the village spinster, a country-house owner and her niece as well as a stagey Frenchman and a supercilious socialite. All gathered in a drawing-room.....

Shots are fired. Characters are killed off. Mysteries unravel faster than Miss Maple’s knitting. Motives flit from person to person. And, of course, the inspector gets the right man in the end. Or does he?

Performances on Friday 30th November and Saturday 1st December. Show time is 7.30pm, ticket prices are £6.50 available online or from 01883 720167
