Show is mur­der

Ruther­glen Rep pre­pare latest show

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations - Jonathan Ged­des

Ruther­glen Rep will re­turn to Ruther­glen­Town Hall in Septem­ber for their latest pro­duc­tion.

The Mur­der Com­mit­tee is writ­ten by Gerry McCar­tan and di­rected by David Chap­man, two Rep vet­er­ans with 62 years ex­pe­ri­ence be­tween them at the Rep, while David will be tak­ing a part in the show too.

This time they’ve come up with an en­ter­tain­ing mur­der mys­tery to be per­formed.

It’s a story fo­cused around the dreaded end-of-sea­son soiree for the com­mit­tee of the Welling­ton Play­ers Drama Group.

The usual mun­dane evening of wine, sausage rolls and ba­nal chat is in­ter­rupted by the sur­prise ap­pear­ance of the po­lice, in the shape of In­spec­tor Pres­ley.

The re­luc­tant de­tec­tive is look­ing into a re­ported dis­tur­bance at a nearby house, and what ap­pears to be a rou­tine in­ves­ti­ga­tion takes an un­ex­pected turn as, one by one, the se­crets of the party guests are re­vealed.

Af­ter the Mur­der Com­mit­tee, the Rep’s at­ten­tion will turn to their Christ­mas pan­tomime, Lit­tle Miss Muf­fet.

They’ll be cast­ing that one at the start of Septem­ber and are look­ing for some new faces to take part in it.

The club re­hearses in the Sky Bar on Ruther­glen Main Street on Tues­day and Thurs­day evenings, and there’s no ex­pe­ri­ence needed for any­one to join.

The Mur­der Com­mit­tee will run on Fri­day Septem­ber 4 and Satur­day Septem­ber 5.

Tick­ets are £ 7 or £ 6 for con­ces­sions and are avail­able from the Town Hall, by phon­ing 0141 613 5700, or online at www. sll­cbox­of­fice.co.uk.
