Strictly MurderTRYING to find out the true identity of visitors to a farmhouse in Provence are, back, left to right, David Darby and Ian Johnson, and front, Mark Aldrich and Sue Terry.
AN INTERESTING and enigmatic story set in Provence just before the second world war is the latest offering from Radcliffe Drama Group.
Strictly Murder is a thriller by Brian Clemens, best known for his work on The Avengers and The Professionals, which has a plot full of deceit, subterfuge, murder, bluff and double bluff.
Almost every one of the characters is not who they first appear to be.
One interesting aspect of the show is the guessing game as to who they really are, and what secrets they are hiding and why.
There are clues, mostly misleading, and several twists and turns.
With the background of the impending war adding to the atmosphere, particularly when Hitler’s voice comes over the radio, the thriller is a chilling one.
Directed by Jon Jones, assisted by producer Tom Spencer, the cast comprises David Darby as Ross, Sue Terry as Miriam Miller, Ian Johnson as Josef, Caroline Aldrich as Suzy Hinchcliffe and Mark Aldrich as Peter Meredith.
It will be staged in Grange Hall, Radcliffe, from Tuesday to a week on Saturday at 7.30pm.
Tickets are available from the National Dry Cleaners, Radcliffe, Christine Harbidge on 0115 9332906, or any member of the group.
