A spoof murder mystery by Peter Gordon is being rehearsed by Heckington Players for their autumn production.
Murdered to Death, in the best of Agatha Christie traditions, is set in a country manor house in the 1930s, with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight – Bunting the Butler, an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip, a shady French art dealer and his moll, the bumbling police inspector and a well-meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder wherever she goes – they’re all here, and all caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the house’s owner. It soon becomes clear that the murderer isn’t finished yet, but will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will audiences die laughing first?
