This fast-paced, black-comedy concerns a none-too-bright aristocrat, Lord Arthur Savile, whose engagement to the lovely Sybil Merton looks like eternal happiness – but all this changes when his prospective mother in law, Lady Julia Merton, insists he has his palm read by Mr Podgers, a well-respected cheiromantist who predicts that Lord Arthur will commit a murder at some time. To prevent his future wife from having to bow her head in shame for him, Arthur feels duty-bound to get the dirty deed over and done with before the marriage and sets about choosing his victim, and their method of disposal. He enlists the help of his faithful butler, Baines, and decides to poison his great aunt, but his plans soon start to unravel.
Now we’re getting into the final few rehearsals, the cast are really getting into the swing of things and delivering a fun, pacey, entertaining play.
