Where comedy meets murder
‘Curtain Up on Murder’ is a thriller written in 1997 by Kent-based playwright Bettine Manktelow who is renowned for her crime comedies.
An amateur theatre company is rehearsing in the theatre at the end of the pier.
Storms rage overhead and the doors are locked — they are trapped!
Then a mysterious, ghostly presence passes across the stage, and when the assistant stage manager falls to certain death through a trapdoor, the remaining actors are thrown into disarray.
Their panic increases when one of the actresses is poisoned and it becomes evident that a murderer is in their midst.
