Murder comes to Meppershall in HATS Drama Group's upcoming production later this month.

Murder Afloat will be performed at Meppershall Village Hall at 7.30pm on May 18, 19 and 20.

The murder mystery play, by Christine Woodhead, is set in the 1920s on board Lord Malloran's luxury yacht.

It's Lady Prudence's birthday and the high-class guests are attending a cocktail party. However, relationships are fraught by hidden secrets and something ghastly is about to happen.

Keith Lander plays Lord Malloran, while Lady Malloran is played by Steph Allen, Silvia Malloran is played by Rachel Benson, Antonia Berresford is played by Paula Hemmings, Bertram Malloran is played by James Ward, and Agatha the maid is played by newcomer Charliee Wolton.


Members of the audience will have the chance to deduce who has done the deed and why.

Tickets cost £16 for individuals, or £90 for a table of six, which includes a ploughman's supper.

Friday and Saturday are sold out, but tickets are still available for the Thursday night.
