The cast of At the Sign of the Crippled Harlequin (s)

A CASE of mistaken identity is the subject of the next production from the Phoenix Players.

At the Sign of the Crippled Harlequin, a thriller by Norman Robbins, is set in a snowbound guest house in the Peak District.

It sees Marjory Pike wrongly identified by another guest as the author of a book declaiming certain mediums, one of whom had committed suicide as a result.

The son of the deceased medium is staying at the guest house, so when he arrives in the lounge bloodied and bruised, and Marjory is found dead, the finger of suspicion naturally points at him.

But the guest house may be haunted, other guests have their own secrets, and even the proprietors are not above suspicion.

The deepening mystery is rich with shocks and laughs as the play moves to its unexpected close.

Performance dates are December 6 to 8 at the Earlsdon Methodist Church Hall.

Tickets are £6, £5 concessions, from Sandra on 02476 464241 or Paul on 02477 043330 or 07538880498.
