WADS, Whitchurch’s community theatre, and Whitchurch Silk Mill are jointly putting on Careless Talk Costs Lives, a murder mystery at the Mill next month. Any profits the Silk Mill makes will go towards the water wheel restoration fund, which is seeking £6,000 to bring the wheel back to pristine working order.
The blurb for the mystery, which is written and directed by WADS’ own Sue Washington, says:
“You are invited to attend the 20th wedding anniversary of James and Margaret Fletcher at Whitchurch Silk Mill. It is July 1943 and, despite wartime restrictions, we can promise you an evening of good food, plentiful drink and lively company. But there’s going to be trouble at mill, and always a chance that not everyone will make it through the evening alive . . .”
The murder mystery is on for one night only, Friday 12 July at 7pm. Tickets, which must be bought in advance, cost £20 (no concessions) and include a three-course dinner and a complimentary drink on arrival. There will be a cash bar, where you can buy wine, beer and soft drinks.
Guests are welcome to join in the fun and come dressed in 1940s costume, but of course you don’t have to if you don’t want to.
Tickets are available online from wadsweb.org.uk and from the Silk Mill shop.
When you book, please let us know if you have any special dietary requirement and if you’d like to sit at the same table as your friends – otherwise, you can choose your seat on arrival. Each table will accommodate eight people. Or send us these details via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
