A most engaging play not to be missed and yes it’s at the Theatre.

This fantastically funny independent production is a murder mystery "whodunit" that takes a tongue in cheek look at the world of TV Soap and Celebrity.  The play is running now at NIDA produced by our friend Nick Bolton and written/directed by Sam Atwell.  The show runs until May 18th and we recommend you get along and support some great local talent.  If you're up for a laugh, this engaging story will get you chuckling and probably leave you wondering why it is that you don't get to the theatre more often.  Click here to buy your tickets
