Directed by Chris Ridge, “whodidit?” has already achieved recognition for The Nantwich Players.

This wonderful and delightfully funny one-act play won Best Production at The Chelford Festival last week – and I can see why.

The cast gave everything they had to their performance, each playing a number of roles in the production.

It is almost impossible not to laugh while you’re watching this.

Lee Edwards plays the police officer investigating a series of strange murders which occur in the spooky mansion home of the Darlings.

Here, the cast develop into a range of characters, played by Eamon Goodfellow, Lucy Desmond, Simon Dean and Angela Pearce.

The characters are hilarious and as in all murder mysteries, I found myself wondering what would happen next.

“whodidit?” highlights the extraordinary talents of The Nantwich Players, and there is a chance to see the production in the upcoming Theatre Festival on Friday May 31.

A new and exciting festival for the town, which celebrates Nantwich Players’ 30th year at the Love Lane Theatre and offers a wide variety of plays over five days.

It starts on Tuesday May 28 when Vamos Theatre presents Finding Joy.

On Thursday May 30, Kepow Theatre Company presents Crazy Little Thing Called Love, a comic look at love in a family friendly show.

On Friday May 31, you have a chance to see whodidit? and Jordan a true story about a woman marginalised by society.

The Players present Dumb Show on Saturday June 1, a funny black comic satire about celebrity.

I know where I’ll be that weekend. Watching whodidit? again, trying to catch the jokes which were drowned out by laughter the first time round.

Tickets for the festival are available from the Nantwich Tourist Office.
