An Engagement with Death A 1950’s Whodunnit

The action of the play will take place in the gardens or inside if wet. All tickets £7. Box office 01379 384505/

Tea and cakes available.

On a warm summer’s day in 1958, Lily and Harry are looking forward to celebrating their engagement in the beautiful gardens of Lily’s family home. The bunting is up, the champagne is on ice. Everything looks ready for a joyful celebration. But events are about to take a sinister turn. Nobody put Death’s name on the guest list, but he slips in unannounced. You are invited to join the guests and turn sleuth as you try to work out who is responsible for bringing Lily and Harry’s party to a tragic close. So dig out some Fifties gear and join the party as we make … an Engagement with Death.

Come & Sing HMS Pinafore with soloists from Ipswich Gilbert & Sullivan Society.

Music will be provided in the programme. An informal singers’ rehearsal will start at 7pm. The concert will start at 8pm. Everyone is welcome to join in the full four-part harmony of the chorus - or simply watch and hum along!
