Dunchurch Players’ latest production is to be staged this weekend at Dunchurch Village Hall.

The group’s new play is Ian Hornby’s farce, Hello! Is There Any Body There? and it shows between Friday September 20 and Saturday September 28.

In their isolated mansion on the edge of the moors, Lady Amelia, the famous murder mystery writer, and husband Sir Malcolm, a brandy soaked harmless lecher, along with wimpish friend Freddie, are innocent bystanders to an over-the-top gunning down.

Cue the police – a trio of ineffectual investigators - while a below stairs butler and clueless cook merely add to the chaos. The show is to be staged on Friday September 20, Wednesday (25), Friday (27) and Saturday (28) at 7.30pm. On Sunday (22) it starts at 2.30pm and on Thursday (26) there is a gala dinner at 6.30pm. Ticket prices £7, available from Wanda Fashions (by the stocks) call (01788) 522021.
