“Dead Wicked”
We suspect you’re ready for our next production, and we have two thriller one-act comedy plays that will have you on the edge of your seat this May.
Our first whodunnit offering is ‘Bang You’re Dead’, by Paul Reakes.
Lydia and her boyfriend Marcus rehearse the murder of Theo, Lydia’s husband, which they’re to commit that evening. When the victim and the ‘perfect witness’ arrive, the well-rehearsed plan appears to have an unrehearsed ending. A ghastly mistake – or are there some deviations from the original plot?
I’ve put pen to paper and written our second suspenseful comedy, ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes’.
The play is set in the dressing room of Clarence Marchant – an old-school Shakespearean actor, who is playing the lead role of Macbeth. As Clarence’s career unravels at the bottom of the bottle and a mysterious accident on-stage stops him in his tracks, understudy Dominic takes centre stage, unaware of the dark secrets surrounding him.
Has Polly (Dominic’s fiancé and fellow actor) been pulling the strings behind the scenes, has stage manager Trevor caused Clarence’s downfall, has Claire (Clarence’s dresser) pulled out a show-stopping performance herself?
Two years later, Dominic is now a successful actor, playing Hamlet, and has returned to the same theatre and dressing room. Suddenly ghosts from the past start to appear in haunting revelations. Is the price of fame all it’s cracked up to be, or has Dominic been left with blood on his hands?
Rehearsals are just kicking off (at the time of going to print) and we’re delighted to bring three new faces to the stage since our last show – Andy Biggins, Ranata Maynard and Jack Marlowe. We’ve got a killer line-up ready to knock you dead:
