'Lord Arthur Savile's Crime' | 23rd May - 30th May 2020

This hilarious farce based on an 1890’s story by Oscar Wilde is about Lord Arthur Savile who is engaged to the lovely Sybil Merton. Her pet chiromantist, Podgers has read Lord Arthur’s palm and has foretold that he will commit a murder. Lord Arthur desires a blissful married life and therefore feels bound to get the murder over and done with before his marriage. Despite help from his faithful butler, Baines and the mad but cheerful anarchist Herr Winkelkopf, attempt after attempt fails. Then news comes that Podgers is a charlatan and Lord Arthur is free to go to his wedding rehearsal. Alas, as Lord Arthur sets off he faces Winkelkopf’s latest ploy - a bomb. Will Lord Arthur save the day? That remains to be seen!
