The cast of Common Ground Theatre Co's A MURDER AT ST MUTTLEY'S - web.jpg

Here’s a shot of our wonderful cast in a break from rehearsals. Pictured are: Joe Leat (Common Ground/Eastern Angles/NWT regular), Kate Hunter (seen recently in Southwold/Aldburgh Summer Theatre and Woven Theatre’s Gainsborough & The Modern Woman,  Ben Elder (Southwold/Aldburgh Summer Theatre, Ink Festival regular) and Julian Harries.

Renowned French-South African detective Hercule Poudrot and his intrepid sidekick Captain Darcy venture Eastward to investigate the disappearance of a Bishop from the convent of St Muttley’s

What dark secrets will they uncover in the neighbouring village of Boring Tye? What is the macabre secret shared by it’s inhabitants? What other goings on - are going on?


Another classic festive comedy thriller, brought to you by Suffolk-based Common Ground Theatre Company. Directors Pat Whymark & Julian Harries 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 )


Running time 2 hours (including interval)
