After a reading of this play on Friday 31st May and ‘Party to Murder’ on Monday 3rd June it was decided to have a further reading of ‘Murder in Play’ on Friday 7th June as some missed the first reading and it has proved to be the more popular. The reading will be at The Tesco Community room at Tesco Extra in Trowbridge.
Boris Smolensky’s budget repertory production of “Murder at Priorswell Manor” is looking decidedly shaky. The cast are more interested in their egos than the play and life imitates art when Boris’s wife, Renee, is murdered on stage. Simon Brett’s hilarious text ruthlessly satirises the politics of the inept company and the numerous red herrings keep the audience guessing until the final moments of the play.
