The Bleadon Players will retell one of Oscar Wilde’s short stories in a new show this week.

The cast of 10 will tell the story of the story, based on the 1890 book by Oscar Wilde, of Lord Arthur Savile who is engaged to the lovely Sybil Merton.

A fortune teller foresees Lord Arthur committing a murder.

Eager to live a quiet married life and get it over with, he attempts to kill some of his distant relatives in a number of ways. However his attempts are foiled over and over again.

When Lord Arthur did not think things could be any worse for him, he climbs into a carriage to go to his wedding rehearsal with a bomb.

Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime will be at Coronation Hall, in Coronation Road, at 7.30pm from tonight (Thursday) until Saturday.

Tickets, priced £7, are available on the door or from Bleadon Post Office, in Purn Way.
