The redoubtable Mrs Reece and the ladies of the Guild (plus Gordon) are presenting their latest production ‘Murder at Checkmate Manor’.  The hapless cast of five under Mrs Reece’s direction are faced with the task of playing fifteen wildly different characters between them but remembering who they are and where they should be at any given time may be a challenge too far for the cast.  The situation is not helped by having a backstage crew almost as incompetent as themselves, but we are sure of one thing, nothing goes according to plan.

Every drama group has experienced the horrors of what can go wrong on opening night, and the ladies of the F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society are no different, with the possible exception that almost everything that could happen does! The scenery collapses, cues are missed, lines forgotten, and the sound effects take on a strange note at times, as the ladies present their ambitious evening’s entertainment with the cunning whodunit, “Murder At Checkmate Manor.”

Can they pull it off, will the fiendish murderer be revealed, come and see for yourself?
