‘A Fete Worse than Death’ is a murder mystery and comedy play rolled into one, set at a village fete, where the action takes place in the country produce tent. Actor Ray Martin is opening the fete, using his fame from playing TV’s Inspector Brady. Little does he know that ambition, infidelity and marrow envy will lead to murder, and he’ll be left to solve the murder – without a script!

Set in a single marquee set, 'A Fete Worse Than Death' is a comedy for 4m & 3f.

MALCOLM
Contender for Thornton’s Biggest Marrow. Self-important chairman of the Village Fête Committee.

BUNNY
His wife. Fed up with taking second place to a marrow. She’s discovered what Nigel can offer her instead.

NIGEL
Historical re-enactor. Spends the play in full Viking regalia, complete with plastic horned helmet. Takes re-enacting very seriously. In love with Bunny.

TRISH
Fête organiser. Efficient, but bitter that she doesn’t get the recognition she deserves for all her work.

FATHER MIKE
The vicar. Thinks he’s very trendy, but it would be nice if he actually listened to people more.

MISS PARMENTER
Spinster of the parish. A Miss Marple type of character, dressed in a tweed skirt, cardigan and pearls. Rather formidable, in her own way, though she can’t quite distinguish between Ray Martin and the detective he plays on TV.

RAY MARTIN
An actor. Excellent as a TV detective, but out of his depth when faced with a real murder.
