A thriller by Francis Durbridge
Robert and Stella learn that their son has been kidnapped - not for ransom, but to force them to allow one of the kidnappers to remain in their house. Two other men, supposedly police officers, arrive and reveal that one of the kidnappers has been murdered. Soon, however, it is clear that these two are far from what they seem. A highly exciting thriller, first seen at the Savoy Theatre in 1982 with Gerald Harper and Susan Hampshire.
Directed by Fiona Hinson

A brand new play written by our own J.R. Allen
The Manor, a small country hotel, is at risk of being sold to developers!
In order to find a new business, the manager has decided to run a Murder Mystery Weekend, although she didn't plan for an actual murder.
...how is it that so many of the guests know each other, (intimately, in some cases...)?
