What’s On

27 to 30 March 2019

Murder on Cue – a murder mystery by Robin Jennifer Miller. This production is an amateur production by arrangement with Stagescripts Ltd.

Following our award-winning production of Quartet last November, Hartley Players bring you a light-hearted whodunnit to test your powers of deduction while thoroughly entertaining you.

Dead bodies, poison pen letters, intrigue and accusations will keep you guessing until the killer is finally unmasked. Will you guess who it is before the denouement?

The play is set in a retirement home for actors, where gossip and old rivalries sustain the residents. Sounds a bit like Quartet with actors instead of singers? There the similarity ends!

A fall of snow means the home is cut off from the outside world so no one can leave – including Gareth, the solicitor who arrived that afternoon to re-do the will of his Aunt Sybil. There has been a spate of anonymous poison pen letters. In an attempt to get to the bottom of the letters, the residents read out the ones they have each received. This results in secrets being revealed, some more reluctantly than others but, as accusations fly, a body is discovered. Detective work finally reveals the truth and the killer is unmasked.

    Came to see Calendar Girls on first night. What a triumph! I enjoyed every hilarious and sometimes emotional moment. Well done to the ladies of Knapely WI and supporting cast

    We came to see Twelfth Night on 22 November 2014. Thank you Hartley Players for such an entertaining evening and well done on your first (I think!) venture into Shakespeare!!

  5. The National Operatic and Dramatic Association’s representative enjoyed Twelfth Night. “The .. simple set worked well. Good use was made of part of the auditorium for entrances and exits. Backstage work was handled well, as was lighting. Costumes looked excellent and colourful against the black curtains.

    There were some strong performances from the leading characters. The rest of the cast were equally up to the challenge and the quality of acting was excellent throughout. Congratulations should go to all involved, especially Director Martin Pickering who can be justly proud of the way he brought Shakespeare to Hartley for the first time.

  6. Stuart Carr says:

    This performance was of Premier league standard with the cast being the Man City of the Am Dram circuit. I have seen this play 4 times and this one excelled, from the set design to the courage of the cast to face the audience whilst miming the final scene, it was a superb production.

  7. Jeff Loomes says:

    The play is beautifully crafted and therefore deserves, if not demands, a performance of at least equal merit. And, by gosh, it got it in the form of the Hartley Players November, 2018 production. My congratulations to the cast, director and production team, not forgetting the set designer and builders. Top marks to you all!
