Laughs a-plenty are guaranteed when Dereham Operatic Society presents its latest play next month at the town's Memorial Hall.
They are presenting the cult hit comedy, The Farndale Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Murder Mystery - a spoof on the world of amateur dramatics.
The strain is beginning to show on producer Ross Holland's face as he works with untalented actresses amid scenery crashing down, lines forgotten and cast rows threatening the play.
The play is the creation of writers David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr, authors of a series of plays that show an incredibly incompetent group of ladies trying to put on Macbeth, a ghost story and in this case, a murder mystery.
