Fintry Am Dram’s spring production is almost upon us and I’m treading the (slightly bloodstained) boards again; this time playing the prudish and rather bossy Chair of the village hall committee, in ‘Agatha Crusty and the Village Hall Murders’ by Derek Webb.
One by one, members of the Chortelby Village Hall committee are coming to a sticky end, but are they accidents or something more sinister?
There are plenty of suspects, including: grumpy Harry Knott, the caretaker; identical twins, Olivia and Oliver Truscott-Pratt; Chair of the committee, Eleanor Wagstaff (me!) - even local vicar, the Reverend Toby Bishop is in the frame.
In charge of the investigation is the spectacularly incompetent D.I. Twigg. Thankfully, crime novelist Agatha Crusty (pronounced 'Croosty') has come to Chortelby to visit her niece, Alice, so is on hand to give the Detective Inspector some much-needed insight.
With plenty of laughs as the deaths pile up, this is a genuine murder mystery and a great evening's entertainment.
We're on for 4 nights, from Wednesday 16th to Saturday 19th May, at the Menzies Hall, Fintry. Tickets are on sale now.
