MURDER in Little Grimley by David Tristram and Sketches from “Laughter Lines” by Frank Gibbons plus a fun quiz
After the success of “Lockdown” by D. Tristram, he promptly wrote another episode in the “Little Grimley” saga – the sixth in the hugely popular series – entitled: “MURDER! in Little Grimley”. As Tristram afficianados we siezed the chance to perform the play, which follows the antics of a hapless Amateur Dramatic Society desperate for audiences. We love this series because it is really rewarding to perform, with great characters and very funny dialogue. The plots reflect familiar issues as they are set in a village very like Berrow, and so many situations echo the real problems of being in a small amateur drama group – although we have had no murders at Stage 2… so far! In addition to the main play we performed some amusing sketches and our usual fun quiz to make the evening complete.
About the Play:
In the latest Grimley scenario… Anxious to cash in on the public’s appetite for detective dramas, the Chairman Gordon writes a whodunit… but in a bizarre twist he then finds himself embroiled in a real-life murder mystery that threatens to put him behind bars. The quarrelsome quartet have been in some sticky situations over the years. But can they possibly get away with murder?
