Directed by Elaine Burns

1 male, 4 females – 

  • Gordon (play Inspector O’Reilly)
  • Felicity
  • Audrey
  • Mrs Reece
  • Thelma

Every drama group has experienced the horrors of what can go wrong on opening night, and the ladies of F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society are no different, with the possible exception that almost everything that could happen, does! The scenery collapses, cues are missed, lines are forgotten and the sound effects take on a strange note at times, as the ladies present their ambitious evening’s entertainment with the cunning whodunnit, “Murder At Checkmate Manor”.

Blue Remembered Hills – September

  • Peter – Bully, not very clever (scratch head, confused look), thinks with fists, always wants what the others have
  • Raymond – Younger, sensitive, cowboy (toy gun focus of attention), stutter, follower
  • John – protective of brother (Raymond), intelligent, diplomatic, calms atmosphere, moral
  • Angela – girly girl, twirls hair, she uses her femininity to get her way, always gets her way, doll prop (likes playing the mummy)
  • Audrey – unfortunate, boys don’t like her, threatened by her tomboyish nature, stroppy, happily resorts to violence
  • Donald – loner, abused, scared, isolated, introvert, scratching his body, hiding his scars with clothes

This deceptively simple tale relates the activities of seven English children, played by adults, on a summer afternoon during World War II.
