Original Drama in the Salisbury Studio: Thursday 13 and Friday 14 July at 7.30 pm.
The Youth Theatre perform their original play The Man Who Disappeared, based on the life of Harry Farr, a young soldier unjustly shot for “cowardice” in 1916 despite two years uninterrupted service in the trenches. Based on research from interviews and documents, it tells the story from Harry’s birth in 1891 to his granddaughter achieving his pardon in 2006.
(Statue from the Memorial Garden to those shot for cowardice in the First World War.)
Left Luggage by K C Finn gives us a complete change of gear, as the Theatre Club’s New Writing Group presents a darkly comedic mystery set in a 1920s country house hotel – An abandoned suitcase. A gruesome murder. A missing body. Six suspects with hidden connections of their own. Will the detective solve the crime before suspicion tears everyone apart?
