Quarry Theatre launches post-lockdown season with whodunnit comedy

With waiter service to your seat and a programme of socially distanced events in the diary, the Quarry Theatre is looking forward to welcoming back audiences on Friday 21 May.

Its first production is Done to Death, By Jove!, described as, ‘The 39 Steps meets Agatha Christie via Holmes and Watson’ and created and performed by Gavin Robertson and Nicholas Collett.

A cast of six bring a comic flurry of suspects and sleuths together to discover whodunnit, and how. Except…four of the cast are stuck by the side of the M6 in the van, and only those Sir Gavin and Sir Nicholas have managed to get to the venue.

The show must go on and what could possibly go wrong?

Comic clichés from the Great British Detective genre abound – including Lords and ladies, shady servants, secrets, motives and cunning detective-work – in this genre-busting farcical comedy.

“We are excited to be able to reopen our theatre once again,” said Quarry Theatre director, James Pharaoh.

“Covid secure systems are in place including a dramatically reduced capacity to help keep groups of people at 2m+ apart.

“Our waiter service remains in place with refreshments being delivered directly to your seat. Our staff look forward to welcoming you back to our fabulous theatre.”
