Pratting about in time
Another plug for someone else’s show, but this time not a local amateur production but instead a peek behind the curtain of the professional stage!
Back in April 2014 we enjoyed a successful production of Murdered to Death, introducing the unique inspectorating talents of Inspector Pratt. There are two sequels, Secondary Cause of Death and Death by Fatal Murder, and Pratt’s creator Peter Gordon has now added a prequel which will be debuting in 2017. In the author’s own words:
“I’m delighted to say that Talking Scarlet, who toured with ‘Secondary Cause of Death’ this year, will be touring with the premier of the prequel in 2017. The current plan is for it to tour in the New Year and then again in the late autumn.
It will initially be touring under the title of ‘Dong Ding Murder Me On High’ but will probably tour in the autumn and be published under the title of ‘Sleighed to Death’. Don’t ask …. it’s a long story!!!”
Peter Gordon’s own website has more information about both the play and the tour.
Wifey and I saw Talking Scarlet’s production of Secondary Cause of Death earlier this year and are already looking forward to the new one. With two sequels and a prequel to play with, sooner or later Pratt will be returning to BaCStage. You have been warmed!
