Murder in Play Thursday 26th May-Saturday 28th May – Doors open 7:30pm
Ingatestone & Fryerning Dramatic Club is proud to present Simon Brett’s hilarious comedy thriller MURDER IN PLAY. Boris Smolensky’s budget repertory production of “Murder at Priorswell Manor” is looking decidedly shaky. The actors are more interested in their egos than the play, the props seem to have a life of their own, and the director has personal problems! But fiction becomes reality when someone is murdered on stage. Who was the murderer? Was it one of the cast? Was it someone connected with the director? Was it a rival actor? Or could it have been the director himself?
