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…

What a cracker!

The seasonal festivities are well under way.  As 2014 draws to a close it’s a good time to take a look back at what we’ve done at BaCStage in the last twelve months. We had two hugely successful shows this year.  In April Murdered to Death knocked ’em dead, and in October Hero paid tribute…

And so I conclude my conclusions

Last night we completed our highly successful run of Murdered To Death. Thompson (Thomkins, sir) and Pratt, yesterday We had another great audience on Saturday.  They were a little more … how can I put this politely… lubricated… than on previous evenings, although I think that was mostly due to the non-acting members of BaCStage…

Colonel Craddock, yesterday We played to one of our largest Thursday audiences, certainly since this Pratt joined the group at any rate (no, not you sir, I’m Pratt).

The stage is set for murder

Welcome to Bagshot House. It is 1936.  Mid afternoon. Nobody (or should that be ‘no body’) is in the lounge at present.  Mildred is readying herself for the arrival of her guests.  Dorothy is busy in the kitchen.  Bunting is in his room in the basement, getting better acquainted with a bottle of Napoleon brandy.…

There is a murderer in their midst!

Who among this group is a cold, ruthless, murdering murderer? Dorothy, in the dining room, with the carved wooden elephant?  Could be. Pierre, in the lounge, with the paint brushes?  Perhaps. Bunting, in the basement, with the bottle of booze?  Shurely not! (hic) I’ll give you a clue – it isn’t Constable Thomkins… … or…
