“The Farndale... Murder Mystery” is a hilarious slapstick comedy in the style of The Play that Goes Wrong. The ladies of the Farndale... amateur drama society, in a housing estate somewhere in England in the 1980's, like to put on plays with great enthusiasm but little expertise. This time they wrote their own murder mystery, "Murder at Checkmate Manor". Things aren't going entirely as planned, but "The Show Must Go On" and so they march on undeterred, despite a couple of mishaps. Or maybe more than a couple. This Mercury Players Society production is directed by Rien Vesseur who has directed The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, Anatomy of Grey and Mending Fences, among others. The cast of 6 includes experienced local talent.
