THE PLAY THAT NEVER WAS
18th – 21st May 2022
Our next production, “The Play That Never Was” will be performed 18th-21st May 2022.
Written and Directed by Julie Ryan, our latest offering is a comedy of (un)intentional errors.
Expect the unexpected, for nothing is as it seems in this 1940s country house. Part farce and part murder mystery without a murder!
Inspector Clotard is supposed to be investigating a jewellery robbery but he is on the hunt for the murderer from last year’s play. With a drunken prompt and a missing cast member, doubling up of roles ensues, leading to misidentification with hilarious consequences.
Fast moving and full of wordplay and double-entendres, ‘The play that never was’ will have you doubled up in laughter.
Set in a 1940s country house, this is a short one Act comedy with musical interludes between the scenes.
Lord and Lady Merryweather return home from a party to find that their host has been burgled. Inspector Clothead has been called in to investigate the theft of a necklace but is more interested in finding the murderer (from last year’s play), to the annoyance of his assistant, Constable Wright.
Confusion arises when the actor playing the gardener is stuck in traffic and the handyman has to stand in. In a further twist, the maid is knocked unconscious, leaving Lady Merryweather dressing up as the maid.
With the director and producer working on two different plays, the prompt’s job is pretty much impossible; not helped when the prompt gets drunk and the scripts get mixed up.
