14-19 May 2018 – DEATH BY FATAL MURDER by Peter Gordon
Directed by Richard Varley

Inspector Pratt’s record of crime detection at Bagshott House is not enviable. In his two previous visits, chronicled in ‘Murdered to Death’ (staged at Moulton in March 2013) and ‘Secondary Cause of Death’, the body count mounted disastrously as he looked on, helpless and hopeless! Now he is back and, as usual, chaos rules supreme.
During the course of his latest investigations, 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 Tomkins. 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, Blodwyn Morgan.

16th – 21st July 2018 – DAD’S ARMY by Jimmy Perry and David Croft

The classic BBC TV comedy series of the Home Guard of Walmington-on-Sea who battle daily against the Germans and local ARP Warden Hodges, comes to the stage complete with all the well-loved characters: “stupid boy” Pike, “Don’t panic, don’t panic” Jonesey, “Doomed, we’re all doomed!” Fraser, “May I be excused, sir?” Godfrey, and all under the command of the redoutable Captain Mainwaring and his effacing deputy Sergeant Wilson.

8th – 13th October 2018 – GEORGE ORWELL’S ‘1984’

Adapted for the stage by Matthew Dunster
Directed for Moulton Theatre by Lee Winston

War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.

Winston Smith rewrites history for the Ministry of Truth, but when he is handed a note that simply says ‘I love you’ by a woman he hardly knows, he decides to risk everything in a search for the real truth. In a world where cheap entertainment keeps the proles (proletarian) ignorant but content, where a war without end in always fought, and the government is always watching, can Winston possibly hold on to what he feels inside? Or will he renounce everything, accept the Party’s reality, and learn to love Big Brother?
