This hilarious musical is a send-up of Agatha Christie style detective stories (especially her detective novel And Then There Were None) and musical styles of past years. Ten people are stranded in the isolated English country estate of Lord Rancour, deceased, during a raging thunderstorm. One by one they are picked off by cleverly fiendish devices. The bodies begin to pile up in the library as the survivors frantically race to discover the identity and motivation of the cunning culprit.

    Went to see Murder on Cue last night, my first ever attendance at a Hartley Players production. Absolutely brilliant! Well done to all the cast and crew.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Eileen McManus says:

    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!!
