277th Production - Agatha Crusty and the Village Hall Murders by Derek Webb


Presented at Lowther Pavilion - 26 to 29 April 2023.

Directed by Bob Gemmell..





Outline of Play

Agatha Crusty (pronounced Croosty) is a criminal novelist and also pretty adept at solving crimes.

When her sister-in-law, Alice, invites her to spend a few days with her in Chortleby, it is not long before she gets caught up in a series of murders which appear to be directed at members of the All Saints Village Hall committee.  With the aid of a very incompetent Detective, Inspection Twigg, they set about solving the crimes.

There are plenty of laughs as the murders begin to pile up and whilst packed with wit and some very funny scenes, this is a genuine murder mystery.  It is a very ingenious plot, could you solve it.

Come along and find out!!!
