Our Next Show - Agatha Christie's Go Back for Murder

Our next Show at the University of Sheffield Drama Studio is the classic Agatha Christie murder mystery 'Go Back For Murder' and will run from 20th to 23rd September 2017. Rehearsals are going well. See more details or go straight to our ticket orders page.

Carla Crale lives with a disturbing secret; her mother, Caroline, died in prison convicted of poisoning Carla’s father. Receiving a letter from beyond the grave in which Caroline proclaims her innocence, Carla becomes obsessed, determined to clear her mother’s name. Enlisting young solicitor, and son of her mother’s defence lawyer, Justin Fogg, she persuades those present on the day of her father’s death to ‘go back’ to the murder to examine memories warped by time, prejudice and, possibly, misdirection. 

A classic Agatha Christie murder mystery, Go Back For Murder takes intrigue, subterfuge, passion and misdirection to a terrible and chilling conclusion. Don’t miss this fantastic show. All tickets £8

Small image of flyerOur most recent show was one of our summer 'project' shows which we called 'Mind Games'. It was a fantastic evening of four short plays by acclaimed stage and screen writer, Neil LaBute, arguably the most provocative playwright in modern theatre for his frank examinations of human nature and the extent to which people deceive and manipulate. They were in performed in Queen's Social Club in Sheffield (28 & 29 June 2017) and Chapel Playhouse, Chapel en le Frith (30 June and 1 July)

Our latest main show at the University of Sheffield Drama Studio ran from the 5th to the 8th of April 2017 was the comedy drama 'Neighbourhood Watch' by the highly popular and prolific Alan Ayckbourn. 

When Martin and Hilda’s peace in their new home is shattered by vandalism, they form a Watch committee with their eccentric neighbours. But the situation deteriorates hilariously as their ideas escalate - and nobody knows where to draw the line. A “painfully funny and truthful play” - The Stage, 2011.
