“Murdered to Death” by Peter Gordon (April 2014) more photos

This hilarious spoof of the best of Agatha Christie traditions is set in a country manor house in the 1930s, with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight – Bunting the butler; an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip; a shady French art dealer and his moll; the bumbling police inspector and a well-meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder wherever she goes – they’re all here, and all caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the house’s owner.  It soon becomes clear that the murderer isn’t finished yet, but will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will audiences die laughing first?

What they said about Murdered to Death on the Bluntisham Facebook page:

“Just seen ‘Murdered to Death’ at Bluntisham Village Hall. Really really funny …. Laughed all the way through.
My husband and I both said Murdered To Death was better than a play of the same genre that we saw last year in Cambridge cast with celebrity actors!!
Well worth £8 and I must say, the chairs were actually comfy too!!! Great that you take your own refreshments. Recommend”

“We thoroughly enjoyed last night’s performance. Very well done to everyone involved.
Highly recommended to any one who wants a good giggle one evening.”
