MURDER, MAYHEM AND MYSTERY IN BELSTONE VILLAGE HALL
Constant backbiting and bickering on a committee? Surely not! But, apparently, there was at the All Saints Village Hall in Chortleby and someone was bent on revenge!
Will Detective Inspector Twigg get his man . . . or woman . . . or will unassuming crime novelist Agatha Crusty (pronounced “Croosty”) beat him to it?
From Toby the Vicar and Eleanor, Chair of the committee, to Harry Knott the caretaker and identical twins Olivia and Oliver Truscott-Pratt, there are plenty of suspects. And with an investigating officer as incompetent as D.I. Twigg, there are plenty of laughs as the murders begin to pile up.
All this and supper too – when Belstone Players perform “Agatha Crusty and the Village Hall Murders”, in Belstone Village Hall, on the evenings of Wednesday 19th – Saturday 22nd March. Starring all the usual Belstone Players’ suspects and directed by Robin Hill, the evening consists of a two-act play by Derek Webb with a two-course supper during theinterval.
Bar opens at 6.30pm; curtain up at 7.00pm. Tickets £10 from Marion Walpole 01837 840498
