Murder most foul on show in Shinfield Players' Sign of the Crippled HarlequinBy Caroline Cook
March 06, 2013
Murder most foul will be taking place in the Shinfield Players’ latest production.
The company is performing Norman Robbins’ creepy thriller At the Sign of the Crippled Harlequin, until Saturday.
Set entirely in a snowy guest house in the Peak District the play is billed as a good old-fashioned murder mystery with plenty of twists and turns.
When Marjory Pike is wrongly identified as the author of a book which declaims certain mediums (one of whom committed suicide as a result) a ghastly chain of events begins to unfold. Soon no-one is safe as the guests try to find out the identity of the mystery author, and to save themselves from a murderer who appears to be hiding in the house.
“It has been a very tight rehearsal period, but everything is coming together,” says Karen Bird who plays Pammy Seton.
