DulvertonplayerslogoIt's Murder Out There

 

It’s a dangerous stage out there. Since Dulverton Player Richard Hall conceived his original “Murder at the Wedding” and staged it at All Saints’ Church, the corpses have been piling up.


Last autumn a sell-out audience dodged the bullets at the “Shooting Party”. In March the Players were invited to beautiful Knapp House at East Anstey for an evening of murderous mayhem in support of the Pre-School. They must have minded their p’s and q’s as they have been invited back to die all over again next spring.


Although Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers may be spinning in their graves, it’s not difficult to see the attraction of a mystery evening. The audience is able to enjoy both the fun of solving a whodunit and the pleasure of good food and wine in good company.


Actors like them too. The script is minimal, and so it’s a great chance for uninhibited character acting without the hard work of learning a part.


Sadly, Richard Hall is no longer with the Players after moving back to Southampton. Tickets for “Murder at the Funeral” rushed out of the door of the Dulverton Post Office for this year’s blood-stained offering on September 13th.


Creator Charlie Blanning promised that, “Family and friends gather to pay their last respects - if they can be called that – to the deceased. Eulogies are declaimed but around the coffin malicious gossip eddies and swirls. Everyone wants to know what is in the will. But amongst the sandwiches and bridge rolls, suddenly there’s another corpse. Will bumbling and bungling Detective Inspector De’Ath solve the crime, or will the audience have to do it for him?”

As Inspector De’Ath is played by Players’ Chairman, Les Silverlock, we all know at least the answer to that one. What next? “Murder at the Christening?”
