Are You Being Murdered?

Previewed at Devonshire Park Theatre, Eastbourne, 28-30 July 2022
Premiered at Pleasance at EICC, Edinburgh Fringe, 4-20 August 2022

Written by David Semple

Starring Arthur Bostrom (‘Allo ‘Allo!)

Directed by James Callàs Ball

World premiere of a new murder mystery set in the golden age of BBC sitcoms, from the acclaimed Father Brown writer David Semple.

A supporting artist’s job is to be invisible, inscrutable, and not to pull focus from the stars… and Jamie Button does his best to follow these rules, until the day he witnesses a murder on the set of a popular sitcom.

Extra turns detective, stepping into the limelight in a definitively unscripted way. As events unravel and the culprit fears detection by this amateur sleuth, could it be that Jamie has said his last ‘rhubarb’?

Celebrated actor Arthur Bostrom, best known for his hilarious role as Officer Crabtree in Croft and Lloyd’s hit ‘Allo ‘Allo!, makes his solo debut in this funny, fast-moving and nostalgic romp.
