A COMMUNITY theatre group will be taking centre stage as it prepares for its next show.

The Wraysbury Players, based at Wraysbury Village Hall, is set to perform Richard James’ comedy, A Fete Worse Than Death.

The plot follows a little-known actor who is opening up a village fete, playing on his fame as TV’s Inspector Brady.

But little does he know that ambition, infidelity and marrow envy will lead to murder, and he'll be left to solve the murder without a script.

Nigel Handyside, who has been secretary for Wraysbury Players for 12 years, said this will be the group’s second in-person show since covid.

He said audiences can expect “comedy and stupidity” if they come to watch the show.

“It’s all a bit silly, it’s tongue and cheek and it’s just light-hearted,” he said.

“We’re all looking forward to having an audience back and we can’t wait to see some familiar faces support the play.”

Nigel will be joined by cast members Jim Minter, Ben Wood, Claire Wood, Sarosh Khan, Jacqui Lindegger and Anastasia Stravrinides.

Nigel added the society is always looking for new members.

“We welcome new actors and volunteers all year round,” he said.

“We put ourselves up on stage and we all see it as a challenge to express ourselves while giving that entertainment to the audience and we just have fun.

“We like to think we put on a good professional show for the community despite our limited budget so come and support us and enjoy a couple of hours of humour.”

A Fete Worse Than Death will run from May 12 to May 14 at Wraysbury Village Hall.
