Spiders Web
Directed by Ric Hutton
Was performed June 10th - 14th 2014 at The Shed.

Spiders Web - Pippa Hailsham-Brown, Clarissa Hailsham-Brown and Jeremy Warender

Clarissa, the second wife of Henry Hailsham-Brown, is adept at spinning tales of adventure for the delectation of their bored diplomatic circle, but when a murder takes place in her own drawing room, she finds live drama much harder to cope with. Especially as she suspects that the murderer might be her young stepdaughter, Pippa.

Moreover, Henry will shortly be arriving home with a V.I.P. in tow who might take a dim view of bodies in the drawing room!

Spiders Web -  Miss Peake and Hugo Birch

However, by the time Henry gets home the murderer has been unmasked and all is normal, so normal that Henry is utterly unable to believe Clarissa when she explains exactly why there are no refreshments ready for their honoured guest.
