Following the very successful presentation of the play The Thankful Village in November, Festival is presenting two new productions in conjunction with St. George's Hall Venue Management in St. George's Hall:
Where Is Mrs Christie? - Saturday 16th February 7:30 pm:
The mysterious eleven-day disappearance of Agatha Christie during the nineteen-twenties, an object of fascinating speculation worthy of one of her own detective thrillers, is the source of this one-woman touring production by the Worcester Rep Company. Author Chris Jaeger cunningly turns the "whodunnit" into a "whydunnit" with Agatha herself as narrator, defendant, and defence counsel.
Instructions for American Serviceman in Britain - Saturday 23rd March 7:30 pm:
A highly acclaimed comedy set in June 1942. A horde of Yankee servicemen (to be played by the audience) have landed in deepest darkest rural England and they're confused by the ways and customs of their hosts.
Everyone speaks funny, boils their food into oblivion and goes on endlessly about the weather. In comes a crack team of experts to brief them on the rules of British life - but the experts (Americans who've only just arrived themselves and English officers who think they know it all) are just as bad as their students and proceed to confuse all and sundry.
Tickets for both plays are £12 and available from the cafe in St. George's Hall or online by following these links:
