Murder in Company

A three act play by Philip King & John Bolan.

Directed by Mark Cox

Theatre 282 Blakedown is offering a murder mystery for their June production.

Set in a provincial church hall the action revolves around a group of amateur dramatic society actors assembling to

rehearse a murder mystery play under a rather dictatorial director.

The appointment of a new village hall caretaker, who has a dark past that connects him with the drama group,

creates an atmosphere that ensures the characters visit many personal emotions and failings including humour,

implied infidelity, past secrets and eventually murder.

The play is original in its context and surprising in its climax.

For those who enjoy a bit of Agatha Christie then ‘Murder in Company’ has it all.

Theatre 282 also recently produced three short one act plays from the young actors section.

The plays ‘Six Primroses, ‘In Service’ and ‘Dreamjobs’ were very well received by the audiences as all the young actors produced some amazing performances.

Theatre 282’s young actors section goes from strength to strength with some amazing talent amongst its ranks and it is fairly certain that more productions will be staged in the future.
