LDC serve up ‘Murder and Chips’

Following its hugely-successful production ‘Chuckles and Chips’ last year, Lindfield Dramatic Club (LDC) is breaking new ground for this year’s spring production on Friday and Saturday, 24th & 25th May.

The club is staging a Murder Mystery Evening at the King Edward Hall, with a short play in three acts by Chris Martin, called ‘Who Killed the Director?’. As last year, the evening will be divided by a fish and chip supper.

Appropriately, the play is set in a theatre where members of a local amateur dramatic society are rehearsing a murder play set in the 1930s.

Audience participation is part of the entertainment of course and so they will be divided into 12 tables of six people each – strictly limiting the attendance each evening to 72. 

LDC Chairman Rex Cooper explained: “We assume that people will have organised themselves into their six-strong ‘teams’ when buying their tickets but individuals or couples can easily be linked up with others to make up a table. After all, we are talking about like-minded people here, many of whom know each other thanks to being regulars at our productions.”

Tickets will be available from the Happy Feet shoe boutique in Denman’s Lane, Lindfield from 1st May, costing £12.50. The performances begin at 8pm and the bar will be open at 7.30pm and again during the interval.
