Murder In Play

by Simon Brett, Directed by Rachel Neill

“Murder in Play” is a play within a play. When Boris Smolensky’s third-rate repertory company decides to produce “Murder at Priorswell Manor” chaos ensues, since the actors are more interested in their own egos than the quality of the production; and life imitates art when Boris’s wife, Renée, is murdered on stage.

Simon Brett’s hilarious text ruthlessly satirizes the politics of the inept company and the numerous red herrings keep the audience guessing until the final moments of the play.

This amateur production of “Murder in Play” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.

About WTG

The WTG has members of all different ages (18 an above), skills and experience. We all work together to put on a great show. We always welcome and encourage new members to join and take part in whatever aspects of theatre production interests them, but also encouraged people to try and dip a toe outside of their comfort zone and try new things such as painting set, writing a script, acting on stage and controlling light and sound. Everything is important. It’s also a great way to meet new people and make new friends.

If you’re interested in joining, just pop along to the Arts Centre in Washington on a Tuesday night around 7:30pm and ask at reception for Washington Theatre Group. If you would like more information before taking the plunge please use the contact form on this page or on the Contact Us page.
