Murder at Checkmate Manor


The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society are performing their annual production "Murder at Checkmate Manor" led by Mrs Reece. There are only four members playing 15 parts between them. Gordon, their stage manager, is called on at the last moment to play the part of the inspector.

The hilarity begins with the cast mixing with the audience and part of the set falling down and a table collapsing when the curtains open. Ladies rush on to make hasty repairs. All the horrors of things going wrong on the opening night of any amateur production are experienced - lines forgotten, wrong entrances made together with strange sound effects all adding up to an incredibly funny production.
