Lead actor Vincent Royle isn’t pretending when he dies onstage during a performance. Join the rest of the cast and crew as you try to work out who pulled the curtain on Vincent’s life.
Set in 1926, our Final Curtain plot is packed full of scandal, gossip and intrigue. Everyone gets to play one of the characters in it and is somehow connected to the theatre company. If you want to take centre stage, you can. Just play one of the Littledean Theatre’s star actors and a moment in the spotlight will be yours. Or if you’d prefer to observe more and participate less, other roles are there for you. As the dresser, perhaps. Or box office manager. Or assistant stage manager. There is something for everyone!
As the plot unfolds, you’ll find plenty to talk about with everyone else in the room. Finding out what they know. Hiding any shameful secrets your character may have. And trying to find out who the murderer is.
It’s all great fun and very informal. Near the end, people are put in teams and decide who they want to point the finger at. Accusations are made then the actor playing the Inspector shares the truth with everyone. A murderer is arrested. Justice prevails and a great time is had by all.
