Murder by Misadventure

Our most recent production opened on 11th March 2013. Murder by Misadventure is a play by Edward Taylor. It is a Thriller about TV Thriller Writers Harold Kent and Paul Riggs.

Harold has become dissatisfied with his writing partner and wants to dissolve the partnership but Riggs knows he would not survive as a writer without Harold and threatens Harold into maintaining their association. Harold conspires with his wife Emma to kill Riggs using a plot from a projected script as his inspiration.

The plan goes smoothly or does it??? Laughs, thrills and mind-boggling twists abound in this ingeneous thriller which played at the Vaudeville Theatre in London in 1992 with a cast including Gerald Harper and William Gaunt.

The Cleadon Village Drama Group cast includes: John Errington, Ian Reah, Carol Machin and Peter Calvert. Click here to see the photo gallery.
