MURDER can be hilarious, on the stage at a theatre at least. Nowhere is set to prove this theory better than the Civic Theatre in Chelmsford this February.

A conspiracy-driven whodunit from the Agatha Christie genre, Murdered to Death is a comedy thriller with twists and turns and side-splitting antics.

Set in a country manor house in the 1930s, the colourful cast of characters guaranteed to delight include – Bunting the Butler; Charles Craddock with the prerequisite stiff upper lip; the bumbling local inspector and his constable and a well meaning local sleuth Miss Maple who seems to attract murder wherever she goes.

Add to this a high society debutante and a shady French art dealer, and you have the perfect recipe for uproarious fun and hysterical happenings.

But following the mysterious death of the house’s owner, will the murderer be unmasked before every one else has met their doom, or will the audience die laughing first?

Tickets are priced at £18.50 and £17 (concessions £17 and £15, matinee £16, registered unemployed and full-time students £5).

To book tickets visit or call the box office on 01245 606505.
