Midnight Murder at Hamlington Hall


It is the opening night of director-writer Shane Tweed’s new murder mystery, Midnight Murder at Hamlington Hall.

Seven of the amateur theatre company’s cast are down with the dreaded lurgy. So the Middling Cove Players’ director and two of the remaining actors, and whoever else Shane can co-opt, pitch in to continue the long tradition of ‘the show must go on’. Juggling nerves, props, and absurd miscasting, will they manage to pull it off? Or will everything go horribly, terribly and awfully wrong?

Mark Kilmurry and Jamie Oxenbould‘s new comedy looks behind the scenes at the world of amateur theatre, where luck, determination and unbridled confidence rule the day.
