Food to Die For??
Was it arsenic in the sugared almonds or cyanide in the cough mixture? Questions for the audience at the latest Murder Mystery evening at The Old Vicarage Guesthouse. The cast of “Wingin’ It”, under the professional direction of Naomi Kenny, certainly kept everyone guessing with their production starring Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The plot, written by Karen Boult, was set in the 1890s and the costumes were amazing, thanks to the clever hands of Val Knowles and Naomi Kenny. Everyone joined in with the fun and frivolity with some guests adding to the candle lit atmosphere by dressing in period - with Morag from Aberdeen a worthy winner of the prize for “best dressed.”
There was no doubt that the “poison” was not found in the delicious 4 course meal which accompanied the script. The deep red colour of the Coq au Vin did however add to the murderous scene! All in all - a truly great Who Dunnit?. Maurice and Ruth from the Old Vicarage wish to thank all the cast of Wingin’ It and also to thank Norma Miles for her amazing interpretation of 3 Music Hall songs. To the great amusement of all the audience, during her rendition of “The Boy I love is up in the Gallery,” the “boys” enthusiastically waved white tablecloths rather than hankies, to gain her attention and her love!
Next event at The Old Vicarage is on Sunday 17th March, a celebration for St Patrick’s Night with live music and song and once again delicious food. Contact us on 01289 306909 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
