Curtain up on Murder

Theatre Royal Wakefield welcomes the 18th Wakefield Drama Festival. This annual event showcases the work of the best amateur drama groups across the region. Seven plays in seven days presented by seven different companies; a mixture of comedy, tragedy and drama.

An amateur drama company is rehearsing in the theatre at the end of the pier. Storms rage overhead and the doors are locked – they are trapped!

Then a mysterious, ghostly presence passes across the stage, and when the assistant stage manager falls to certain death through a trapdoor, the remaining actors are thrown into disarray. Their panic increases when one of the actresses is poisoned and it becomes evident that a murderer is in their midst…
