March 2012 Production


By Way of Murder
(or Sex, Murder, Kidnap, Suicide, Blackmail and Despicable Deceit)
written and Directed by Mark Waghorn

Fresh from our exploits down on Cold Comfort Farm, those of you who read the programme will have seen that we have already lined up a new play for the Spring and we will need to prepare for this promptly with rehearsals beginning at the start of the new year.

 

The play is called By Way of Murder (or Sex, Murder, Kidnap, Suicide, Blackmail and Despicable Deceit), a terrific new thriller written and to be directed by Mark Waghorn who played Seth Starkadder in last week’s production.

 

Lady Sarah’s stately home of Baxford Hall is the setting for this tale of murder, kidnap and deceit.

Film producer Jack Summers, and his actress wife Janie, have taken refuge at the Hall to escape death threats that Jack has been receiving.

A visit by Detective Superintendent Beveridge puts Jack’s shady dealings under scrutiny and when murder and kidnap follow, no one is sure who they can trust. It’s up to Beveridge to solve the crimes.

Meanwhile, what is Miss Franklin – the Hall’s mysterious housekeeper – up to?

 

Full details, including the parts available, are in the attached summary.

 

Performance dates will be Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th March (the last term-time weekend before the Dacorum Easter school holidays).
