The action takes place in the dressing-room of a provincial theatre during the performance of a thriller. Suspense builds when Addie, the star of the show, begins to feel unwell and for the first time her understudy takes her place for the dramatic and violent last act of the play.
When a shot rings out in the theatre during the performance one of the cast lays dead. Was it suicide? Was it murder? Who had access to the deadly stage prop and replaced the bullet with a real one. With everyone a suspect the final revelation unveils not only the murderer but the price some actors pay to practice their art.
There will be the usual Licensed Bar, Full Disabled Facilities and Parking for over 80 cars.
As usual this will be at Stock Village Hall
