What's On

Murdered to Death by Peter Gordon
 

The play introduces the inept and bungling Inspector Pratt, who battles against the odds and his own incompetence to solve the murder of the house's owner. Bunting the butler, an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip, a shady French art dealer and his moll, bumbling local inspectors and a well-meaning, local sleuth who seems to attract murder - they're all here, and all caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the owner of a country manor house. It soon becomes clear that the murderer isn't finished yet; but will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will audiences die laughing first?

Like champagne that’s lost its chill, life can lose its thrill.


Frilly, flimsy and flippant, focusing on frivolity,  the serious business of office politics,...


Suspense and surprise go south in North by Northwest, substituted with cheesy cheer east of Edam.


Naive theatre meets high tech in The Umbilical Brothers’ production, The Distraction.


The lights go down. The cicadas scream. The lights come up and we wait for the play to begin....
