What: "Play On!" by Rick Abbott
This was the hilarious tale of a theatre group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty authoress who keeps revising the script. Act 1 was a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act 2 the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final Act the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does go wrong!
A play within a play where the actors and actresses staged "Murder Most Foul". This is a classic melodrama featuring English aristocracy, their maid, a millionaire, a famous scientist and a lovely socialite. But who was the dastardly villain in the piece?
The Cliddesden Players took this play to heart as it stirred up memories of wakeful nights wondering whether lines will be learnt, costumes ready, sound effects and props will let them down and, most of all, will the audience think that there actually had been any rehearsals!
