For the fourth year running the Whodunwot Players [aka Kippax Dramatic Society] returned by popular demand to entertain us and put our detective skills to the test with their latest mystery, ‘Reunion for Murder’. Seven former colleagues from Collinghall Independent School met up at a reunion hosted by Algernon Smallridge at his remote country residence.
A chance to catch up with old friends? To reminisce in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere? It was ten years to the day since a very suspicious death at the school. The St Wilfrid detectives were out in numbers as almost eighty sleuthing Brethren, wives and friends gathered in the dining room. As we all enjoyed a delicious three course school dinner, events took a tragic turn with a Algernon’s untimely demise!
Clues and red herrings abounded as the teams of detectives tried to solve the baffling crime. Should witnessing a murder be an enjoyable experience? Thanks to an enthralling script and excellent acting this dramatisation managed to entertain, confuse, amuse and challenge our investigative and observational skills.. ‘Really enjoyed that!’ & ‘Are they coming again next year?’ was again the verdict. A great success and a really enjoyable evening in excellent company!
The generously supported raffled raised a superb £450. This was the final fundraising event of the Masonic year and thanks to the tremendous support given to this and all the raffles at each of the events this year, a grand total of over £2700 has been raised for the Master’s Charities, the Leeds Children’s Heart Surgery Fund and the William Merritt Centre. A big ‘Thank You’ to everyone for their outstanding generosity
