Common Ground theatre’s autumn tour is perfect for those spooky October evenings.
They’ll be performing at the Walsham Le Willows Memorial Hall, on Thursday 21st October, 7.30pm.
This year’s autumn tour is THE HELLGATE CLUB, a gothic murder mystery set in “Belle Epoque” Paris, with live music in the cabaret style of the period.
A series of strange happenings have the authorities baffled. Several men have disappeared under mysterious circumstances, with no connection between them other than that they were last seen in the vicinity of the notorious Pigalle district. With no leads, the police ask retired detective, Jean Tellier (played by Julian Harries) to take one last case. Sensing danger around every street corner, in every dimly lit café, in every dark doorway, Tellier begins by interviewing the proprietors and staff of the local bars and nightclubs, including the notorious Hellgate Club.
For over 10 years now, Suffolk-based Common Ground Theatre Company has been entertaining audiences all over East Anglia and in London building up a loyal following with, as one reviewer put it, “the consistent quality of their work…[and]…the variety of their productions, each one quite distinct in form and style from the last”.
Autumn shows tend to be either adaptations of classic stories, or original dramas and comedies. Live music, performed by the cast is always a big element.
