Midnight Murder at Hamlington Hall
Ensemble Theatre is thrilled to present the world premiere of Mark Kilmurry and Jamie Oxenbould’s charming new comedy, Midnight Murder at Hamlington Hall.
This holiday season, Artistic Director Mark Kilmurry and Ensemble favourite Oxenbould have teamed up once again to write a hilariously unruly play within a play set in the world of amateur theatre, directed by Kilmurry, and starring a cast of five including Oxenbould.
It is the opening night of director-writer Shane Tweed’s new murder mystery, and the Middling Cove Players are buzzing with expectation, electricity, and nerves. Seven of the amateur theatre company’s cast are down with the dreaded lurgy, and only 2 hours remain until showtime.
Desperate to continue the long tradition of ‘the show must go on’, Shane, two of the remaining actors, and whoever else they can co-opt, must pitch in to get this play off the ground. Juggling nerves, props, and absurd miscasting, will they manage to pull it off? Or will everything go horribly, terribly, and awfully wrong?
