Murder's In The Heir

1st September 2018 to 8th September 2018

Caxton Theatre Main Stage

Director:Gemma Dodds

Writer:Billy St. John


Turn the game Cluedo into a play and you have the masterfully entertaining Murder’s in the Heir! Almost every character in this hilarious mystery has the weapon, opportunity and motive to commit the unseen murder; and it’s up to your audience to decide who actually did it! Each of the heirs to the tyrannical billionaire Simon Starkweather has the means and the motive to do away with him. Starkweather gathers his family and employees to announce the contents of his will. His lawyer, Lois van Zandt, reveals that he has bequeathed vast fortunes to his befuddled niece Fiona, her playboy son Jordan, his great-niece Paula (a Southern belle) and his grandson Simon III, as well as to his many servants. Then Lois delivers the bombshell! Within hours this will becomes invalid. Of course, the rejected heirs are not pleased, so it’s not surprising when they roam the old mansion carrying such items as an axe, a gun and poison. Predictably, the lights go out, and Simon is discovered murdered. Simon III (played by the same actor who plays the elderly Simon) is determined to find his grandfather’s killer, with the help of detective Mike Davis. The play’s unique ending, utilizing secret ballots gathered at intermission from the audience, determines the killer in this Billy St. John maze of murder. **Please note we have a no refund policy on our tickets and all tickets bought online are to be collected from the Theatre Box Office during the week of performance**

Smother

13th October 2018 to 20th October 2018

Caxton Theatre Main Stage

Director:Joseph Parfrement Parkes

Writer:Ben Parfrement Parkes


You are cordially invited to the birthday party from hell. To mark 75 years of The Caxton Theatre, Smother is a brand new play from local writer Ben Parfrement Parkes (Dead and Breakfast), which has been commissioned exclusively to commemorate this momentous milestone. Recently widowed Joan Merrifield is also preparing to turn seventy five. And what better way to celebrate her special day than with a visit from the whole family, reunited after many years apart? Could she have asked for a better birthday present? What could possibly be nicer than being surrounded by her nearest and dearest? Well, as it turns out, just about anything… The festivities get off to a disastrous start when Joan accidentally finds herself in bed with her sleazy ex-husband, Malcolm. Things only go downhill from there, and, as the gin starts to flow, and the social niceties subside, it soon becomes clear why this family have nothing to do with one another. As tensions reach breaking point, it’s all-out war. With long-buried secrets and resentments running chasm deep, who needs party games? Bold and brutal, SMOTHER is a savage, scathing black comedy in which blood really is thicker than water. **Please note we have a no refund policy on our tickets and all tickets bought online are to be collected from the Theatre Box Office during the week of performance**

Caxton Theatre Main Stage

Director:Robert Till

Writer:Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Adapted by Steven Canny and


Adapted by Steve Canny and John Nicholson Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most celebrated Sherlock Holmes story gets a gloriously funny makeover in this “wonderfully barking spoof? adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson for the hit comedy team Peepolykus. When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on his estate, with a look of terror still etched on his face, and the paw prints of a gigantic hound beside his body, the great detective Sherlock Holmes is summoned from Baker Street. With Doctor Watson in tow he is tasked with unravelling the mysteries surrounding the death, and investigate the ancient curse of the “Hound of the Baskervilles?… Written for a cast of three who play multiple roles, this version premiered at the West Yorkshire Playhouse where it broke box office records before touring nationally and transferring to the West End. Packed full of verbal and visual ingenuity that is comparable to “The 39 Steps? the play offers an abundance of opportunities for silly comedy and slapstick. The most popular of the Sherlock Holmes stories becomes pure comic bliss. (The Stage) A mad hilarity that will make you feel quite sane.
