Title of Play: Murdered to Death – Written by Peter Gordon and directed by Adam Hurst
Auditions on Wednesday 10th January 7.45pm
Performances 8th to 12th May 2018 at 7.45pm
Spoof comedy with a Jane Marple character, an Inspector Clouseau character, fake accents and the poor Police Constable who gets shot – twice. Who dunnit? The colonel, the butler? Fabulous fun all round and sure to have the audiences rocking in the aisles.
Cast consists of 5 males, 5 females, assorted ages.
Mildred – Late fifties. Moderately wealthy owner of Bagshot House.
Dorothy – Mildred’s niece. Late twenties and slightly simpering..
Bunting – The butler. Sixties. Pedantic and rather creepy.
Colonel Charles Craddock – Early sixties. Dresses in tweeds. Confident but blustering.
Margaret Craddock – The long-suffering but acerbic wife of Charles.
Elizabeth Hartley-Trumpington – Mid twenties. Attractive and stunningly dressed. Very high society.
Pierre Marceau – A french art dealer in his early thirties. An exaggerated french accent.
Joan Maple – A spinster in her sixties. Amateur sleuth.
Constable Thomkins – Young, bright uniformed village policeman
Inspector Pratt – Inept, posing and clumsy.
We can play around with ages as long as the relationships work. If you think you would like to audition for one of these parts Thames Players would love to hear from you.
