Night Delivery - 'In The Raw' Staged Play Reads
27 Oct 2023 - Tamworth Community Event Centre
Presented by You'll Miss The Tide Productions
The inaugural season of In The Raw, a monthly series of staged play readings, continues with the world premiere, Night Delivery, A mystery play in 2 Acts by Grant Jarrett.
Entry is just $20 and audiences are welcome to B.Y.O drinks and nibbles.
About the play: On a stormy night (Thunder crash!), honeymooners George and Annie arrive at the off-road Ashton Hotel. Their lives will never be the same. Old Mrs Ashton seems strange but the nephew is clearly still affected by dark events in the past – and then there’s the girl with the doll that keeps crying who’s begging to be taken out of there. A truck driver checks-in and keeps talking about murders that happened in the area years ago and what business the mysterious visitor is up to? What is the mystery and what is the secret?
In the style of Agatha Christie this entertaining play will have you on the edge of your seat challenging you to solve the mystery of the Ashton Hotel.
Solve the mystery! The Ashton Hotel is no place to find yourself on a dark and stormy night, especially when you’re on your honeymoon!
This is the world premiere reading of this mystery play by local Tamworth writer and actor, Grant Jarrett.
