Barrow’s Murder Mystery

I sit here on a rather blustery July evening and can only tell the truth: I do not know if we’ll be able to perform the Murder Mystery for you this year. At the moment we can only meet in groups of 6. This rule will have to be relaxed for us to be able to perform. But, since the rule may be changed and we may be able to perform, we are rehearsing. At the moment we rehearse on Zoom. Soon we’re going to rehearse in groups of six in gardens. You might even spot us on the park! To say the least, I’m hoping for dry evenings!!

To add to the mayhem, we don’t know what Humphrey Perkins will be able to offer. It’s not beyond credulity that the school will not be available. I have taken the precaution of booking Holy Trinity Church, so if we can perform and if we can’t have the school, we can perform the Murder Mystery in Holy Trinity Church.

I can only say – watch out for the poster! We’ve taken the photos in a socially distanced way using selfies so watch this space. If it’s going ahead, you’ll be the first to know…

Two’s Company is set in the present day – well 2019 as one of the characters has A Levels to do so it couldn’t be 2020. (Please note, it’s not set in the 1980s because I made a mistake. So, if you’ve got your big moustache planned and have been ironing your leg warmers, wear them anyway!) Or come dressed as village people (all together now: It’s fun to stay at the …)

I can’t even tell you the ticket price, but all being well and social distancing allowing, it’ll be on Saturday 10th October, 2020.

Finger’s crossed…..
