THERE is murder in mind in Rushmere, but who will it be?
A thunderstorm and a windswept country house sets the scene for the new play 'It Could Be Any One of Us,' by Rushmere Players Drama Group.
Inside is a family full of failures including a detective who has never solved a case, a dysfunctional teenager, a writer, an artist and a composer whose work has never been publicly aired.
All the prime ingredients are there to create a traditional murder-mystery thriller of the best kind.
The script by playwright, Alan Ayckbourn, has a number of surprises, twists and turns.
The first question, who will be the victim? Even this will keep you guessing for a time. There are also three prime candidates for the deadly job of murderer.
- 1 New 99-room Ipswich Travelodge expected to open next year
- 2 7 roadworks for drivers in Suffolk to be aware of this week
- 3 7 things around Ipswich which are among the best in the country
- 4 Ipswich girl with cyst on brain struggling to get diagnosis
- 5 See inside £1.65m Ipswich home with swimming pool and games room
- 6 Police carry out 'pre-planned' operation in Felixstowe road
- 7 Man dies after being found unresponsive in Sudbury river
- 8 'We're blown away' - Classic car show visits care home after roadworks setback
- 9 Ipswich MP renews support for food van fighting council's plans
- 10 Suffolk's top 10 fish and chip shops as voted by our readers - now pick a winner
To keep things interesting, and to stop people telling one another 'whodunnit', the identity of the murderer is going to change every night.
But it is not all horror and dastardly goings on. The thrills will be cleverly interspersed with tongue in cheek humour and sly ironic comment.
The show will be performed from Thursday, January 24 until Saturday, January 26 at Rushmere Hall Primary School, Lanark Road, Ipswich from 7.30pm.
Tickets cost £5.50 and are available by calling Graham Turrell on 01473 425688 or e-mailing the Rushmere Players at their website: www.freenetpages.co.uk/hp/rushmere
