The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
A production by Richmond Amateur Dramatic Society.

Every drama group knows the horrors of what can go wrong on opening night, and the ladies of the F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society are no different, with the possible exception that almost everything that could happen does! Scenery collapses, cues are missed, lines forgotten, and sound effects mistimed, as the ladies entertain with the cunning whodunit, ‘Murder At Checkmate Manor.’

And just in case the audience should get bored there's a Film Show and Murder Mystery Quiz, complete with a prize! The crunch comes in the denouement when the ‘murderer’, about to be revealed, has to rush home to bandage up an injured daughter. But Mrs Reece, doyenne of the group, rises above the slings and arrows of outrageous dramatics to save the situation and provide the final inventive twist.

Performances from Thursday 27 to Saturday 29 July and Thursday 3 to Saturday 5 July.

Tickets from £7.50 to £13.50 (includes £1 restoration levy).
