And Then There Were None

Agatha Christie’s critically-acclaimed ‘whodunit’

Directed by Celia Timmington

“Skilfully constructed” (The Guardian) “A masterpiece” (The Telegraph)

One remote island. Ten strangers, lured by an intriguing invitation. As it dawns on the visitors that they are marooned, a mysterious voice accuses each of them of dark secrets. When one of the guests suddenly dies in mysterious circumstances, the similarities with the classic rhyme ‘Ten Little Soldier Boys” become all too apparent. One by one, more deaths will follow unless the survivors can track down the killer among them, in a dramatic race against time. Dramatised by Christie from “the world’s best-selling mystery”, this classy and complex thriller will leave you guessing to the final curtain.

Wife After Death

A comedy by Eric Chappell

Directed by Stephen Pritchard

“A terrific evening of love and laughter” (British Theatre Guide”)

Following the success of last season’s ‘Theft’, the SDC are delighted to produce another hilarious comedy from the writer of TV’s ‘Rising Damp’ and ‘Duty Free’. Comedian and national treasure Dave Thursby has died, and it’s the day of his funeral. Friends and colleagues, including his widow, his agent and his gag writer, gather to pay their last respects. What could go wrong – with a horse-drawn hearse, an attendant dog, and an unfamiliar mourner bearing revelations?? By the end of an eventful wake, all the guests are left asking themselves if they ever knew the “real” Dave.

But as a series of strange and unexplained events occur, Filde begins to fear for his safety. Whilst attempting to convince his employer that the ghostly happenings are real, the two men stumble across a dark and terrifying secret that will change their lives forever. Fresh from a successful national tour, this is a gripping thriller from the literary master of suspense.

One for the Road

A wickedly funny comedy by Willy Russell

Directed by TBC

“Russell’s funniest and most poignant play” (Reviews Hub)

From the author of ‘Educating Rita’, ‘Shirley Valentine’ and ‘Blood Brothers’, comes this acutely observant comedy. Whilst wife Pauline plans another dinner party to keep one step ahead of their smug neighbours, Dennis finally loses patience on the eve of his landmark birthday. Fed up of his middle-class existence of poshed-up cottage pie, Tupperware and garden gnomes, Dennis reaches breaking point and packs a ruck-sack to escape. But will his plan work or is he destined for a life of domesticity? In the mould of Ayckbourn and Mike Leigh’s ‘Abigail’s Party’, you won’t want to miss having ‘one for the road’!
