|The layout of the Hall for the audience.|
Those who are familiar with the Jobsworth series of radio sketches will already
know the characters of this play. Bill Turner, caretaker of the Binford Assembly
Rooms, has been found dead - head-first down a drain manhole. Who did it?
Never happy with Mr Turner's work, Mrs Pressing, the forthright president of Binford Women's Institute, has immediately called a meeting at her house of interested parties to discuss how things at the Assembly Rooms can be run better from now on.
The audience eavesdrops on this meeting - and although it is only supposed to be an informal meeting, Mrs Pressing is out to impress with her catering and has decided that a 3-course supper shall be served to her guests.
But the evening does not turn out quite as she planned
Supper courses were served during the intervals between scenes.
Keep your wits about you throughout the play. At the end, there will be points awarded for correct answers to questions of observation - and points mean prizes!
