Prescription for Murder by Norman Robbins

Directed by Sally Lovejoy

Norman Robbins is one of amateur theatre's most popular authors and with this mystery thriller he does not disappoint.

Wednesday 27th to Saturday 30th April 2016 at 7.30pm

In the seemingly quiet town of Bere Knighton, there is never a dull moment for Dr. Richard Forth. Not only does he have a hectic work schedule and an awkward friendship with his ex-girlfriend, but his wife, Barbara, is constantly ill and nobody knows what is wrong with her.

When Eric Dawson, a stranger, claims to have known Richard's second fiancée - a woman Richard claims does not exist - Barbara's health worsens and she isn't the only one. With bad luck spreading almost as quickly as bad news, it seems somebody is out to kill Barbara, and anyone else who gets in their way.
