Pratt returns for a new case

THE comedy play Death By Fatal Murder can be seen at Buxton Opera House from January 12-14.

Following the highly popular 2010 production of Murdered To Death, Ian Dickens Productions return to the venue with this offering, focusing once again on the antics of the hapless Inspector Pratt.

His record of crime detection at Bagshot House is not enviable. On his previous visit, the body count mounted disastrously as he looked on, helpless and hopeless.

Now he is back and, as usual, chaos reigns supreme. Pratt meets the new owner of the house, Nancy Allwright, and soon he is embroiled in more mystery, aided and abetted by Miss Maple and Constable Thomkins.

Upper crust Ginny and Italian gigolo, Enzo, help with enquiries, but danger soon looms with an unexpected arrival and a frightening suggestion by Welsh busybody and clairvoyant Blodwyn Morgan.

The evening performances are at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee from 2.30pm. Tickets are available by calling the box office on 0845 1272190.
