PREVIEW – Sleighed to Death : Comedy Murder Mystery

Broadstone Players’ next production will be the comedy murder mystery ‘Sleighed to Death’ . This is the latest in the series of much loved plays involving the inept Inspector Pratt. The playwright, Peter Gordon, had stopped writing these plays but missed Inspector Pratt so much that he has written a new one, set at an earlier period in Pratt’s career when he was still a Sergeant.
Broadstone Players are delighted to be one of the first companies to perform it and hope you will join them for a hilarious time set on Christmas Eve in an English country house in the 1930’s. The fun starts when Sgt Pratt and long suffering WPC Potter knock on the door, offering to put on a magic show in aid of, in Pratt’s words, the Retired Policemen’s Malevolent Fund’ !
Play dates are Tuesday 19th to Saturday 23rd November, evenings at 7.30pm and a Saturday matinee at 2.15pm, in Broadstone War Memorial Hall Theatre, Tudor Road, Broadstone, BH18 8AW.
Tickets are £6.50 on opening night, £8.50 for all other performances and can be reserved by email to honsec@broadstoneplayers.co.uk or by telephoning 01202 678449. Alternatively they can be purchased at Broadstone News and Wimborne Tourist Information Centre from 1st November, or on the door.
There is a licenced bar every evening. Complimentary tea and cakes are served at the matinee.
