Rehearsals are well underway for the next production from the Red Spider Drama Society entitled “Secondary Cause of Death”.  This follows their 2016 major production “All the Fine Young Men” a musical/drama following the lives of local recruits from the Lewdown, Lifton and Bratton communities during World War 1

In complete contrast their next performance is the sequel to their popular performance in 2015 “Murdered to Death”.  This sees the return of the bungling Inspector Pratt who arrives at Bagshot House with grim news for Colonel Craddock, but that’s just the beginning. Who is the strange Polish Count? Is Henrietta really an army Captain? How does the eccentric thespian, Longfellow fit in to the equation? These are just some of the characters who make Pratt’s return a chaotic nightmare as the bodies pile higher and higher.

If you find it all too confusing do not despair – so do the cast!

Performances start in the Lewdown Victory Hall at 7.30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday 5th & 6th May.  Tickets at £7.50 are on sale from Mary Jordan on 01837 871220
