Murdered to Death, Thursday 19th May 2016 ­ 7:45pm to Saturday 21st May 2016 ­ 7:45pm

The second offering in the year of murder and mystery by Thurrock Courts Players sees the

bungling Inspector Pratt attempt to solve the mysterious murder of Mildred Bagshot at her country

estate. Suspects include Dorothy, Mildred’s niece and companion; Bunting the doddery old butler;

the pompous Colonel Craddock and his wife; the very well­-to-­do Miss Hartley­-Trumpington and

shady French art dealer Pierre Marceau. Unably assisted by local sleuth Miss Maple, can the

Inspector solve the crime before everyone else meets their doom?  Or will the audience die

laughing first?

Prices – Adults £12 Students £10

touring has enlightened and entertained fans new and old. Also you will hear classics like (I’m

Gonna Be) 500 Miles, and more.
