Common Ground Theatre Company present “Hercule Poudrot investigates A MURDER AT ST MUTTLEY’S”

Another classic festive comedy thriller, brought to you by Suffolk-based Common Ground Theatre Company. Directors Pat Whymark & Julian Harries – “THOSE MAGAICIANS OF XMAS ENTERTAINMENT” (EADT) – are the team behind many genre spoof Xmas shows in East of England, both for Common Ground (most recently last year’s Sherlock Holmes Meets Count Dracula! ) and for Eastern Angles (including Dial M For Murgatroyd and The Mystery of St Finnegan’s Elbow)

Renowned detective Hercule Poudrot and his intrepid sidekick Hustings are called in by Hustings’ cousin, Sister Immaculata Biggles, to investigate the disappearance of Bishop Humbedee from the secluded convent of St Muttley’s. What dark secrets will they uncover in the neighbouring village of Ditcham? What is the macabre history shared by it’s inhabitants? What other goings on – are going on?
