HANGMEN by Martin McDonagh
The Bovingdon Players’ ever-popular Murder Mystery evenings return with “Who Killed Rob Cockyn?” on June 17th and 18th 2022.
Bring along your own food and drink (and something to eat them with) to enjoy at your table, while you watch the drama unfold, and then try and solve the mystery! You will even have a chance to question the suspects, who all seem very ﬁshy…
The scenario: Rob Cockyn is in serious ﬁnancial trouble. His chain of ﬁsh and chip restaurants, largely ﬁnanced by loans from business associates and an ex-lover, is facing bankruptcy. Rob has been forced to call a creditors’ meeting. But has he had his chips? Will it ﬂounder? Are all the ﬁsh puns just red herrings?
Tickets are on sale now (use the button on the left!). Seats at tables of 8 are £10 each, or £70 for a full table. The evening begins at 7:45. Please note that there will not be a bar at this performance.
Health measures will be in place in the Hall. Please do not attend if you are exhibiting any symptoms of Covid.
Our November 2019 production was set in the 1960s in a pub in Oldham. 'Hangmen' told the story of Harry, ‘the 2nd best Hangman in England’ and how he coped with the abolition of hanging. A thoroughly gripping and entertaining darama.
At last, in November 2021 the Bovingdon Players returned to the Memorial Hall with a double-bill of classic comedies:-
The Real Inspector Hound by Tom Stoppard
Chinamen (from The Two of Us) by Michael Frayn
