Murder is Served - A fundraising evening with a difference

A surprise Birthday party for Clarissa Hopgood has been arranged by Alice, Clarissa’s long-suffering companion at the Chez Lindsey’s Restaurant. The guests have arrived and are waiting for Clarissa. However, the evening does not go as planned and the search is on for a murderer. Not everyone is who they say they are, so it is up to the audience to solve the crime.

With excitement, intrigue and foul play, trickery is most definitely afoot. Are you a Miss Marple or a Morse? Please come along to help solve the mystery to this fund raising event with a difference, where the audience are invited to play detective.

Performed for one night only by The Bethel Players at the Players Theatre, Lowestoft, this play has been described as Agatha Christie meets Fawlty Towers. All proceeds raised will be donated to the popular town centre venue owned by The Lowestoft Players.

The cast, headed by director Karen Carter and assistant director Gerald Wilson have been busy rehearsing the for several weeks now. However, it’s not yet been revealed to them who the murderer actually is!

“This is going to be a really great night out for theatre-goers” said Karen Carter, Director.

“We staged a play in a similar format in 2021. This raised over £1,000 which helped to purchase cabaret tables and smart tablecloths for the Theatre’s auditorium. It’s going to be a really fun night out for everyone.

Murder is Served will be performed for one night only on Saturday 12th November 2022 at 7.30pm. Tickets are just £7 for the raised seating area, and £8 for table seating. Sales for the evening’s entertainment is already rather good, so those who wish to participate are urged to book now. Visit www.playerstheatre.infoor call the Box Office on 01502 770020.

There will also be a fundraising raffle on the evening to help boost monies raised.
