It’s Midsomer Murders meets Bake Off at the March Murders event in aid of Florence Nightingale Hospice on Saturday 25 March at Wendover Memorial Hall.
The Quaintwood Players will be performing The Great British Cake Slice, a play written and directed by the group’s own Sue Yapp in the great British tradition of comedy farces. But this one has a twist – the audience has to work out for themselves which of the bakers competing in the village cake competition has dealt a fatal blow to a rival.
Warm and funny, The Great British Cake Slice provides a competition background to a mystery centred in a village hall with interesting characters, surprising back stories and village dynamics that wouldn't be out of place in Midsomer.
As well as the play, the tickets, which are £18 per person, include a two-course dinner produced by local caterer Debbie Tolputt, with after-dinner chocolates provided by Rumsey’s.
“Last year’s March Murders was extremely well received,” commented the Charity’s Community Fundraising Manager, Emma Carroll. “Everyone really enjoyed the combination of dinner and drama, and the event raised £900 for the Hospice.”
There will be a licensed bar and a raffle.
All proceeds go to Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity, helping to provide palliative care and support to patients battling life-limiting illnesses and their families.
