Our most recent Play Reading via Zoom was on Thursday 2nd February, when we read The Unexpected Guest by Agatha Christie.

If you would like to take part (either to read or just listen) in future play readings please let me know.  You will need to be a member of LGDC to take part, so if you’re not already a member please ask about joining.

February 2nd – The Unexpected Guest by Agatha Christie

Lost in the fog, a stranger seeks refuge in a nearby house only to find a man shot dead and his wife standing over him with a smoking gun. But the woman’s dazed confession is anything but convincing and the unexpected guest decides to help. Remarkably, the police clues point to a man who died two years previously but as the ghosts of a past wrong begin to emerge, a tangled web of lies reveals family secrets and chilling motives, where the real murderer turns out to be the greatest mystery of all.

Dates For Your Diary (Note change of dates)

March 30th – Murder on the Rerun by Fred Carmichael

The curtain rises to find Jane, Oscar winning screen writer, dead at the bottom of the stairs in a Vermont ski lodge. Her friends say she fell. “I was pushed!” she says as her ghost rises… Aided by Kitty, a rather wanton adviser from “up there,” Jane seeks to uncover her murderer in a combination of comedy, intrigue, and suspense.

April – tbc

I look forward to seeing you soon

why play readings?

Our informal play readings usually take place monthly.  They give as an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of plays throughout the year, some that we might consider performing or couldn’t perform for various practical reasons, and for us to become characters that we couldn’t possibly be on stage. All without having to learn any lines!

Just come along and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of coffee, read a part or two, or just listen; you’ll be very welcome, but you will need to let us know you’re coming so we can plan the distribution of parts and you’ll need to pay the modest subscription to join LGDC.  For more information please contact me, Nan Newberry, on 01442 843155 or at
