Some Treachery: A Miss McSkimming Mystery

Some Treachery: A Miss McSkimming Mystery

Saturday 13th May at 6pm
A radio play recorded in front of a live audience (hilarious sound effects included).
What at first seems like a trivial case soon reveals a plot that could shake the very foundations of the British Empire. With her faithful valet by her side, Miss McSkimming must deal with butlers, the police, mysterious men in the shadows and a hippo, to get to the bottom of what could be her biggest case yet.
A rollicking comedy with a chic lady investigator and mysteries abounding, this piece promises to delight audiences, young and old!

Taking place as part of Wandsworth Arts Fringe.

£10 Full price/£8 concessions

“Proof that given enough time, talent and perseverance, theatre that really says something about the human condition can be made.”
***** - 5 Stars, Female Arts (Staying Alive, 2015)
