Stratford-upon-Avon Drama Group
The evening consists of FAHETGDS, under the ruling hand of the Chairman Mrs Reece, doing their play in a well-meaning but bungled fashion, and they apparently feel that a completely irrelevant slide show of dear Mrs Beasley’s recent trip to The Isle of Man, a brief fashion show and a Murder Mystery Quiz to be perfectly acceptable items to include as part of a murder mystery.
She says: “We hope you have a super evening with our Murder Mystery; it’s jolly exciting, and Mildred Braithwaite’s husband did the set, despite that rather uncomfortable problem of his that flared up in the middle of it. We’ve had to double up a bit on the cast, but heigh-ho, it’s all hands to the pumps with us Townswomen. It’s s a smashing script and certainly kept us guessing Whodunnit?”
