It’s the 1950’s and Dolly has found herself orphaned and penniless. She decides to through one last dinner party in her penthouse before it is all taken from her. However those that turn up she either owes money too, being blackmailed by or is Gabriel.

Flash forward to present day where five sisters find themselves in the same penthouse. How does the past affect the present? And why are they there?

Join us for a whodunit as we tried to solve who committed Murder in the Penthouse.

This year is the first time I’ve combined two groups together. I decided to give both groups an Agatha Christie style murder mystery. The challenge being one group was rehearsing all the scenes in the past whilst the other was rehearsing all the scenes in the future. Both groups were really up for the challenge and I hope have had a lot of fun putting this show together.

During the rehearsal period we have had the difficulty of trying to figure out how cross the line between serious and comedic as well as the fact the cast are on stage for a huge majority of the time without leaving. So how do we make it interesting for them when even though they are on stage they might not have a line for a few pages and how do we put both groups ideas and staging into one show.

I really hope they have enjoyed the challenge and that you enjoy our murder mystery.

Enjoy the show!
