Murdered To Death by Peter Gordon

Murdered To Death by Peter Gordon

Contact: via our website or social media


Monday 24th February @ 8pm
Thursday 27th February @ 8pm
Rehearsals Start: Monday 2nd March @ 8pm - The Kings Head (to be confirmed)


This is an hilarious spoof of the best Agatha Christie traditions, with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight: Bunting the butler, an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip, a shady French art dealer and his moll, bumbling local inspectors and a well meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder - they’re all here, and all caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the owner of a country manor house. But will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will audiences die laughing first?

The Magic Tower
In 1930s New York, Linda has left her job as a Vaudeville actress to marry Jim, a young struggling painter. She thinks herself blissfully happy, living in poverty, in their tiny, run down, studio apartment (their “magic tower”) but visits from their caustic landlady and two former colleagues push Linda towards re-evaluating her situation. When Jim returns home disconsolate after failing to sell any paintings to a dealer, Linda faces a stark dilemma about her future.

Me & My Friend (Acts 1 & 2)
Originally performed as a three-act play, the first two acts are also free-standing plays in their own right.
Me and My Friend is a black comedy exploring the relationships within two “odd” couples thrown prematurely out of hospital care. In Act 1 Oz and Bunny conduct fantasy interviews for jobs they will never get. In Act 2 Julia and Robin are trying to “make plans” as urged to by the hospital. Me and My Friend is a funny, moving and heartbreaking look at mental health issues set against the Care in the Community initiative of the late 1980’s.

TicketSource Launches Community Prize

Press release: 11th February 2020

Community groups can win £1,000 for their next event in a new competition sponsored by TicketSource, the online ticketing platform.

“At TicketSource, we know how local events help communities come alive,” said Terry Rosoman, Head of Marketing. “We want to recognise and reward an event organiser who brings the greatest benefit to their community, and whose next event will be most enriched by the £1,000 prize.”

Organisers of events of all shapes and sizes are welcome to apply – from village hall cinema to Bonfire Night fireworks, events will be judged on the value they add to their community in relation to their size and scope.

The competition is open to registered charities and not-for-profit groups that have a current paid event listed through TicketSource or have organised paid events through TicketSource in the last two years.

Applications are open from Monday 2 March to Monday 30 March. All eligible events will go forward to an online public vote, which runs from Monday 6 April to Sunday 3 May. Entrants are welcome to encourage their supporters to vote and ensure their event makes the final shortlist of the ten most popular entries. A panel of judges from TicketSource will choose which event from the shortlist most deserves the £1,000 prize, and the winner will be announced on Monday 11 May.

TicketSource helps organisations to deliver events that bring communities together by providing a cost-effective and easy-to-use online ticketing platform with dedicated customer support.

More information on the TicketSource Community Fund can be found here: www.ticketsource.co.uk/community-event-fund

Autoreverse at Battersea Arts Centre

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @elainec46302904

Review date: 6th Feb 2020

The combination of Argentinian history told through a collection of recorded tape cassettes from her family archives Florencia Cordeu explores how her family identified what and where home was after they fled Argentina for a new life in Chile.

The large collection of various tape recorders spanned the generation of Cordeu’s lifetime. Wearing a white chemist’s suit she entered the stage and switched each one on in what appeared to be a random order. You soon discover that the suit and gloves she later wears are to preserve the old cassette tapes.

Autoreverse takes its name from a function used by cassettes. Cordeu explained in detail how this worked. I am still not completely sure how it works though. One thing I have learned from this production is that tape cassettes only last for about thirty years and the ones she plays are around forty years old. Therefore the next time she plays one it could be the last.

For memories as precious as hearing her families voices on the tapes I am sure they are now all on digital and what we were hearing was that version. Cordeu is extremely fortunate to have these tapes to take with her through life and this production brings her family back to life again.

The collaboration between director Omar Elerian and Cordeu have created a usual but heartwarming production. The combination of family recordings with Cordeu’s translations and a selection of old family photos she brings a part of Argentinian history to the stage. Immortalising her family in this performance with so much love and respect for who they were. It was an honour to have shared the experience.

Four Stars.

Hi, I hope this is okay to post. You are all my last hope.
I really want to do the stage play of dinnerladies! By Victoria Wood. I know there are two out there. Does anyone know where I can go to ask about the rights? I have tried everything. I contacted David Graeme who is he authors but he’s the wrong David Graeme. Has anyone had any luck tracking down the scripts or the rights for this?
Thanks in advance

Peter's response:

Hi Sarah,

I've had this query before from Thurrock Courts Players and as far as I am aware they couldn't find publishers details either. I shall put your question in the #Advice section of the www.dramagroups.com website and its associated Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages within the next 24 hours. I shall ask people to contact you directly if they can help or advise.

Best Wishes,

Peter

Response from Sian Morris 13/01/2020

Tired of not being able to cast plays?
HELP HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!
Playstage Senior plays have plenty of lead roles for actors aged 40 – 70+

Playstage Senior was formed in the UK in 2008 by playwright Lynn Brittney and friends and now our plays have been performed by English-speaking drama groups all over the world.

Unlike other companies that offer play scripts, Playstage Senior is committed to offering new plays that contain good parts for older actors, because we understand the needs of most amateur dramatic groups! The plays contain some younger parts but the majority of the roles are for actors aged forty and beyond (sometimes way beyond) – and not a Zimmer frame in sight!

We have comedies, dramas, murder mysteries, period costume plays – all in one act and full length formats – and we are adding new plays to our catalogue all the time.

And not only that but we have some of the cheapest licence fees in the business. Performing one of our plays is not going to break the bank, no matter how small your venue.
