A murder will happen in Weston next week at the Tropicana.

But it will not be a premeditated act of savagery because the performance will be largely improvised meaning the audiences is bound to be in for a fresh surprise – just like the cast.

Murder She Didn’t Write – a play on words from the much-loved television series Murder, She Wrote – will show not every mystery thriller needs a plot as neat and as choreographed as Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express would have everyone believe.

Instead, it will be knitted together on the night itself.

And the audience will get to play its part by influencing what happens.

A spokesman for production company Degrees of Error said: “Take up your magnifying glasses and don your deerstalkers for a never seen-before and never-to-be-seen again evening of murder, mayhem and making it up on the spot.

“Miss Crimson poisoned in the parlour by a mince pie? Mr Gold exploded by a Christmas cracker in the games room? You decide, but will you guess whodunit?”

The show, which is aimed at over-12s, will be staged at Theatre Tropicana at 7.30pm on November 29. It will be staged at Theatre Shop in Clevedon from December 13-15.

Tickets for the Weston performance, priced £10, are available online at
