Murdered to Death by Peter Gordon
12 to 19 June 2021
This hilarious spoof of the best Agatha Christie traditions is set in a country manor house in the 1930s with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight – Bunting, the butler; an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip; a shady French art dealer and his moll, the bumbling local police inspector, and a well meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder wherever she goes.
They are all here, and all caught up in the side splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the house owner. It soon becomes clear that the murderer isn’t finished yet, but will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will the audience die laughing first?
