A tale of the unexpected from Ashtead Players Ashtead Players are following their comedy success, It Runs in the Family, with an Agatha Christie crime thriller, The Unexpected Guest (see right) The production will run from Wednesday 18th to Saturday 21st April at 8pm, with a 2.30pm Saturday matinee, at Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall in Woodfield Lane. The play starts with the unexpected arrival of a man at a house after a car accident. He finds a woman standing over the dead body of her husband with a gun in her hand. It looks like an open and shut murder case, but it soon becomes clear that she may be covering up for someone, and why is the man so anxious to help her cover up the crime? Is she truly the killer? There are four other people in the house and they all have motives for the murder. As with all of Agatha Christie's mysteries, the plot has a dozen twists – and red herrings galore – before we learn the truth. Amateur sleuths, be on your mettle! Tickets at £10 (concessions £8) are available from the Box Office on 01737 640352, from Buckley Pharmacy in Barnett Wood Lane, the Framing Workshop in The Street or at the hall on the night. Ashtead Players will also be appearing at Leatherhead Drama Festival on Monday 14 May with an original play by Tony Earnshaw, Stabat Mater, while Young Ashtead Players will perform Bully Dancers by Frank Gibbons in the junior week on Tuesday 8 May 2012. For more information about both groups, please visit their website www.ashteadplayers.co.uk or ring Sue Hawksfield on 01372 279614. 68
