Malvern Theatre Players present 'Murder in Play'
30 November -1
at The Coach House Theatre, Grange Road, Malvern
Malvern Theatre Players’ next production features thrills and laughs aplenty, in Simon Brett’s spoof thriller Murder in Play.
Boris Smolensky's budget repertory production of "Murder at Priorswell Manor" is looking decidedly shaky. Rehearsals are not going well. The cast are more interested in their egos than the play, and life imitates art when Boris's wife, Renee, is murdered on stage. Despite all the drama offstage, the show must go on...
It seems that each of this inept company of actors could have a motive for murder: Christa, a fading soap actress, the monstrous director himself, or perhaps Ginette, his pretty, but dippy mistress? And can any of them put up with veteran actor Harrison's dire theatrical anecdotes for much longer? Employing a play within a play, the hilarious text ruthlessly satirizes the politics of the inept company and the numerous red herrings will keep you guessing until the final moments of the play.
