Murdered To Death! – October 2013

Murdered To Death by Peter Gordon

Heckington Players 2013 October production was Murdered To Death by Peter Gordon.

This hilarious spoof of the best of Agatha Christie’s traditions is set in a country manor house in the 1930s, with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight – Bunting the butler; an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip a shady French art dealer and his moll; the bumbling police inspector and a well-meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder wherever she goes  – they’re all here, and all caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the house’s owner. It soon becomes clear the murderer isn’t fished yet but will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will audiences die laughing first?
