If you’d like to see more murders in two hours than in a whole TV season of Miss Marple, then come along to Cubbington Players’ next performance,” A Tomb with a View”.
This off-beat black comedy-come murder mystery has some pretty odd characters, mostly from the Munster-like Tomb family ; one with werewolf tendencies, another who wanders around in a toga like Julius Caesar, a mad scientist, a predatory man eating hussy, and a gentle lady who plants more than seeds in her flower beds.
In a sinister library, presided over by the portrait of a grim-faced, mad eyed old man, a dusty lawyer reads a will to this off-beat family and visitors. Soon there are corpses aplenty, amid plot twists and a surprising conclusion.
“A Tomb with a View” shows at Cubbington Village Hall on Thursday 13th, Friday 14th and Saturday 15th of May 2010 at 7.45pm. Tickets can be purchased (at the ridiculously low price of £5 adult and £3.50 concession) from Bargain Booze/Select Convenience on Rugby Road, Lifestyle Express on Queen Street, Cubbington, by phoning Sam on 01926 887844 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
