The Offord Players (TOPS) will perform their latest production Murder with Ghosts at Offord Village Hall, from November 9-11.

The new play, written by Simon Brett and directed by Sarah Hogben, is set between the first and second world wars and takes place in the library of a manor house.

In this parody of a typical murder mystery, no one is safe and the library conceals many hidden dangers. With a host of classic characters, including the upper crust Lady Cholmondley and her relatives, the inevitable amateur sleuth, a darkly sinister German count, a decidedly dodgy Italian clairvoyant and an odd servant or two - not to mention the dog - possibly all with dark secrets in their past, the audience should be prepared for plenty of bumps in the night.

Tickets are £8 for Thursday and £9 for Friday and Saturday and available from; or Ticketsource on 01480 811798. Performances start at 7.30pm.
