Ring down the curtain, this farce is ended
Plays about plays and theatre companies are very popular and fairly common as a result. Just think of Noises Off, On Monday Next, An Actor's Nightmare and Farndale Avenue Macbeth.

Not only do audiences enjoy them, so do the actors, often sending up the craft they have so painstakingly learned.

The Ellenbrook Theatre Company are proud to present Curtain Up on Murder, a thriller by Bettine Manktelow.

Manktelow says; "Long held ambition to be a writer, struggled unsuccessfully for years and stumbled on an ability to write good dialogue which has enabled me to write plays immensely popular with the amateur theatre."

This charming play takes place at the rehearsal stage of an am-dram company getting ready to mount Dead on Time. A sudden storm plunges the theatre into darkness and what ensues is the murder of one of them. Who, if any, will survive to morning?
