Digswell Players presents A Tomb With A View at the Village Hall from Wednesday.

Directed by Chris White, the murder mystery by acclaimed playwright Norman Robbins runs at the Harmer Green Lane venue until Saturday and promises some rib-tickling fun.

This challenging piece is described as ‘The Addams Family meets Agatha Christie’.

Every family has skeletons in the cupboard – some more than others, as is the case here.

At an ancient Manor house, a dusty lawyer reads a will to the dysfunctional Tomb family.

One member has werewolf tendencies, while another wears a toga and believes he’s Julius Caesar! A third is a gentle old lady with a penchant for brewing up poisoned wines.

By the third act, there are more corpses than living cast members and nothing is as it seems.

All is eventually revealed in this comic drama, as the plots twists and turns to its surprising conclusion.

Tickets for A Tomb With A View cost £8.50 and are available from the box office on 0845 20 90 100, via tickets@digswellplayers.org.uk and the website www.digswellplayers.org.uk

Doors to Digswell Village Hall, near Welwyn North railway station, open at 7.30pm with the performance starting at 8pm.
