A Fete Worse Than Murder
AuthorRICHARDS, Charles - Other Plays by this Author - Contact Author
FormatFull-length.
SynopsisCaused a tremendous buzz when we produced it in 2005 using a cast of 12 . More amusing, intriguing and diverting than the standard whodunnits around. The play is set in a Norfolk country house after WW2, before the Beatles, the action takes place over a week end. The play moves back and forth in time to give the audience a chance to catch up and keep them very much on their toes. Act I Scene I we meet the Mannering Act 1Scene 2 the police investigation begins Act 1 Scene 3 the Mannerings are getting into difficulties Act 2 Scene 1 tensions emerge amongst the investigating team Act2 Scene 2 the night of the murder Act2 Scene 3 appetite, sexism and ambition thwart the investigation and the murderer goes free.
