Farewell Marsham Grange

The Mystery of Marsham Grange is now but a distant memory, with the fireplace dismantled,the posh frocks put away, mad wigs and eccentric artist costume returned to wardrobe and all those unintentional slips of the tongue that made us laugh so much in rehearsal forgotten until we get together for our next production and find new things to chuckle at.  Two new characters; Brenda and Reg Smythe enjoyed an ‘afternoon snifter’ at the local pub – Pusham Inn and Vaughan Maddox Brown ‘died’ on stage – again!

Both our final shows were well received by our audiences who joined in with the fun of guessing ‘whodunit’, sometimes with exceptional humour and originality.  Some guessed who the guilty party was but no-one uncovered the motive – a well hidden secret only revealed at the end of the play.

Now come along quietly Sir!

Now come along quietly Sir!

You must show me your passage sometime Miss Bunker Smith. Really Mr Frobisher - it's full of cobwebs.
