Our Autumn production announced: Ghost Writer - David Tristram's haunting comedy

Like a whodunnit? Our next show at The Little Theatre will be David Tristram's haunting comedy Ghost Writer. and show dates are Wednesday 12 - Saturday 15 November at 8pm nightly, plus Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. Why not put them in your diary now?

The play is a comedy but it also has some dramatic moments -  and it's a great evening's entertainment ... imagine Agatha Christie meets Hamlet!

The author describes the plot:
A  theatre company decides to stage a new production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet - fronted by TV Soap star Julian Dando, and backed by a cast of second-rate hams. 
At the last-night party is one Edward Pinfold, a promising young playwright, and husband of the talented but tempestuous actress, Ruby, who had played Ophelia
 Tragically, that very night, Ruby - a renowned reveller with a reputation for burning the candle at all three ends - is found dead in bed. An overdose of naughty pills and booze.
The theatre world went into a state of mourning that barely lasted into the afternoon. 
One year later, however, Edward remains deeply affected. Unable to face the emotional torment of living in his own home, he has moved into the attic room of one of his oldest actor friends, Alex
Alex, by the way, is gay. Now, that may well have nothing to do with anything. But then again, it might. I mention it merely because it is a fact, though how pertinent a fact you will have to wait and see. 
So, there you have it. I trust you have followed me so far. Because what happens next, as Alex once famously said, could be a bit hard to swallow. We join the story on the first anniversary of the death of Ruby Pinfold ... May she rest in peace ... 
So, what better way to spend an autumn evening - in the warmth of The Little Theatre enjoying a ghost story! Why not order your tickets now - at £7 its a bargain!
