    A Murder is Announced

    17/10/2018 - 20/10/2018

    Sinodun Players are proud to present Agatha Christie’s A Murder is Announced, based on her 1950 book of the same name. This production celebrates 70 years of the Players and 40 years since the opening of the Corn Exchange, as Agatha Christie was President of Sinodun Players for 25 years from 1950 until 1975.

    An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock’s house. The victim is not one of the regular occupants of the house but an unknown and unexpected visitor. Come and enjoy a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities and a second death as a determined Inspector follows the twists and turns, with Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution.




    To Hell in a Handbag

    17/11/2018

    Live theatre. Subtitled The Secret Lives of Canon Chasuble and Miss Prism. this play is written and performed by Helen Norton & Jonathan White.
    While others are preoccupied with cucumber sandwiches and railway cloakrooms, two minor characters from The Importance of Being Earnest are up to their necks in something else. A country rector and a governess, models of Victorian propriety in public. But in private? This is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, false identity … and money. A subversively funny new take on an Irish theatrical classic.




    The Lady's Mad

    08/12/2018

    A new play by Rebekah King performed by professional theatre company Thistledown Theatre.
    Performances are in the Club Room – upstairs venue, not suitable for people with mobility problems.
    It’s 1642. Parliament has declared war on the King. Hester Cavill and her husband have sided with opposing armies: she a royalist, he a parliamentarian. When Sir Arthur is away, Hester refuses aid to a regiment of Cromwell’s troops who have turned up at her estate expecting Sir Arthur’s support. What Hester has not predicted, is that these troops have a strong-willed female leader of their own. Charismatic young prophetess ‘Mad Moll’ has found herself in an unexpected position of power. She calls herself the ‘English Joan’ and directs the troops with her supposedly God-given visions. Spurned by Hester, she aims her cannons and her fury at the Cavill estate. As the various members of the Cavill household struggle to decide where their allegiance lies, a war of wits and wills ensues between the two extraordinary women. Pride and lives are at stake for all involved and, as Moll and Hester exploit the various stereotypes of female power for personal gain, they will both risk the accusation that they were only madwomen after all.
    An original story based on a collection of true anecdotes and written by up and coming playwright Rebekah King, ‘The Lady’s Mad’ illuminates one of England’s most turbulent periods through the lives of its extraordinary women. The piece touches on many relevant themes including family loyalty, the struggle of women and political unrest.
