Based on “Bang You’re Dead” by Paul Reakes

Little Baddow Drama Club is holding another of its successful murder mystery evenings. Seated at cabaret style tables, the audience will become super sleuths as they ponder all the evidence which is acted out before them. The action takes place in the home of Lydia and Theo Spink who have invited Theo’s secretary Amelia Trim for a meal to celebrate her birthday; what happens next is a totally unexpected turn of events that ends in double-cross and murder.

Then over drinks and a finger buffet there will be a chance to come up with the solution before finding out what really happened as the actors complete the story. There will be prizes for the table that comes up with the correct solution.

Director, Lindsay Lloyd is hoping to repeat the success of the previous murder mystery evening “We had such an enthusiastic response to our last murder mystery evening that the club wanted to repeat the format. The main challenge for me was finding the right play. However as soon as I had read Paul Reakes’ script, I realised that “Bang You’re Dead” would suit the evening perfectly. We will be inviting the audience to don their deerstalker hats, bring their magnifying glasses and try to solve the riddle after we stop the play and ask “what happens next?”
