Mystery at Greenfingers

Written by: J B Priestley
Directed by: Eileen Rawlings

Performances:21st –26th October 2019 at Jameson Road AND
16th November 2019 at The Palace Court Theatre

Re-creating the production with which Bournemouth Little Theatre Club became National Champions, performing at the Fortune Theatre, London on 18 January 1938.

A section of this production, involving all ten cast members, will be performed as part of the Centenary Celebrations back in “our theatre”. The play was specially written by J B Priestley to give all ten cast members the opportunity to display their acting skills. Everyone will need clear diction and the ability to project their performance to the back of a 565-seat theatre.

A snowstorm traps a group of guests and crew into the Greenfingers Palace Hotel. A detective is sent to the hotel to investigate a top secret crime, but it is Miss Tracey and a new hostess who solve everything.
