A THRILLING murder mystery is coming to The Mill at Sonning next month.
A Party to Murder, written by Marcia Kash and Doug Hughes, brings together a renowned cast and creative team for a dark tale of double-crosses, secrets and murder most horrid.
The play is a skilful homage to the mistress of murder, Agatha Christie.
Her portrait sits over the fireplace in the living room of a rustic island cottage where six people have come in secret on Halloween to a murder mystery party.
The guests, played by Angela Sims, David McAlister, Elizabeth Elvin, Jeff Mash, Jeremy Gittins and Michelle Morris, appear set for a weekend of fun until ghosts from the past begin to haunt the proceedings and it becomes clear that not all is as it seems.
The game takes a sinister turn when when guests begin to die and the remaining players realise they are playing for their lives. Secret passageways, incriminating letters, hidden bodies and a mystery unsolved for 25 years twist and turn toward the unexpected and terrifying conclusion.
Directed by Ian Masters, the play will have you gasping with shock at every turn.
A Party to Murder runs from October 2 to November 22. For tickets, call 0118 969 8000 or visit www.millatsonning.com.
