A Murder Mystery Play


Now, from the outset, I have to acknowledge we had a few problems with the table arrangements at last year’s Murder Mystery and some of you weren’t seated with your friends. I can only apologise and hope that you won’t give up on us! We’ve got a new team on the table layout and all being well we’ll be back to our usual efficient selves.

Having said all of that, it was a good show last year and this year looks set to be better.

The Final Act, by Andy Hawkes, is about a theatre company that finds itself in financial problems. The amount of back biting - and back stabbing – has to be seen to be believed and one of the company falls foul of the sour relationships. Believe me when I say our cast is nothing like the one you’ll see on stage. They’re acting!

Now – fancy dress. Sound of Mu….. was easy – nuns outfits and dirndls (there was a lonely goat herd, I seem to remember). Last year you did us proud with your 1940s outfits. This year it’s all about lovies. So what do actors wear? Glamorous dresses on the red carpet, silk dressing gowns and cravats, or tweed jackets. Have a think about it and give us a surprise.

The Final Act by Andy Hawkes is at 7.30pm Saturday 5th October at Humphrey Perkins School.

Tickets cost £14 and will be available from Taylors Florist and Barrow Library.
