The Many Murderers Of Henry Havelock by Joe Johnson

Directed by Vicki Pankhurst

Auditions on 30th Oct 7.30 pm at St Albans Church hall

Synopsis:

Millionaire socialite Henry Havalock gathers his jealous family, greedy friends and thieving servants on a dark and stormy night, before delivering the devastating news that he's cutting them out of his will in favour of his new fiancée, Flossie.

Henry's nearest and dearest, of course, doesn't take this news well and all immediately decide to murder him before his new will can come into effect - at the stroke of midnight!

But with so many murder plots occurring all at the same time, with the players desperate to keep their hasty plans secret and with huge revelations revealed throughout the evening - will anyone manage to kill Henry and get hold of the fortune they so desperately desire?
