Bishopstoke Players presents
Inspector Drake and the Time Machine
by David Tristram

Inspector Drake and the Time Machine. He’s back!!! After the hilarious “Inspector Drake and the Black Widow”, performed back in 2013, Inspector Drake and his hapless sidekick return to investigate the mysterious case of a missing professor. His dead body is found floating weightlessly in the study, his daughter has vanished, and everything points to the mysterious Time Machine. Can the intrepid Inspector Drake, ably hampered by Sergeant Plod, solve the crime of the century? The 30th century that is? Fasten your seat belts for a comedy that’s way ahead of its time!

As with all Bishopstoke Players’ productions, proceeds will be donated to the charity Action for Children. The running time for this production is expected to be approximately 1 hour 30 minutes including interval.

This amateur production of “Inspector Drake and the Time Machine” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD a Concord Theatricals Company.

Rumours
By Neil Simon

The master of modern farce takes a group of well-heeled Home Counties party-goers and plunges them into a crazy masquerade, where a scandal must be avoided at all cost. The essential comedic elements are all present from mistaken identity to doomed deceptions, masterly inventions to brilliant one-liners. The mad-cap plot twists and turns before careering closer to its hilarious ending.

Cheriton Players presents
Diamonds are For Trevor
by Simon Tytherleigh and Roger Mortimer, adapted by Helena Gomm

A Bond spoof, Cheriton Players’ autumn production will involve a mixture of filmed material and stage acting, thus breaking new ground for us and an exciting challenge for cast and crew!

HM the Queen and one of her corgis, Tinky Winky, have been abducted, and MI6 have received a ransom video from an anonymous kidnapper with a suspiciously familiar mop of strange orange hair. Unless the Koh-i-Noor diamond is handed over, the Queen and the corgi are toast. This is clearly a job for Bond, but 007 is out on the tiles and his phone is answered by his hapless brother Trevor, who has always fancied having a go at this secret agent business. There are car chases, underwater scenes (just about) and the villains’ lair is blown up just as Trevor hustles Queen and corgi to freedom.
