Join us at Cober Hill for an evening of mystery!
Due to high demand, a second date has been added...

It is the 2018 St Uffing Village Pantomime, and this year it is Cinderella. The St Uffing Players Independent Drama group (StUPID) have been working hard for months trying to perfect their lines. The Director/ Producer, Miss Eltow (The Headmistress of the local school) has been tireless in her efforts and the rest of the cast are now just about ready to take to the stage at last.


Tonight is the final dress rehearsal, to which a number of local dignitaries have been invited. Also there will be Russell Sprout, a journalist and theatre critic for the local newspaper. He is known for being cantankerous and negative about practically everything - he was once a rising star of Fleet Street, working on the Daily Mail and being groomed for stardom until his fondness for lunchtime drinks began to wear the patience even of the notoriously hard drinking editor he worked for. He was sacked and resigned himself to the rest of his career working for the provincial press.


The dress rehearsal has now finished, and the cast are just waiting their curtain call. A loudspeaker announcement is heard:
"Ladies and Gentlemen, that concludes the 2012 St Uffing Pantomime. Cinderella went on to live happily ever after with her Prince Charming, while the Ugly Sisters spent the rest of their lives cleaning out the kitchens in the castle".


The pantomime may have been a strictly amateur performance, but there is drama a-plenty when the critic Mr Sprout is found dead, stabbed between the shoulder blades by the stiletto of a crystal slipper!

£27.95 per person to include a 3 course evening meal!
1 free place for bookings of 15 or more people.
