A Jolly Sinister Jape (by Elliot Strange)
A pastiche 1920’s thriller with a plot that defies description. This is Famous Five fun for adults
as Stubby, Ophelia, Biffy and Fatty find themselves trapped in a mysterious house during a
thunderstorm. Is this someone’s idea of a jape? Or is something far more sinister going on? All

sprinkling of hilarious period slang, along with mystery and thrills. (Running time approx 30 minutes)

thrown out. Time for dramatic action. “There’s only one thing that sells tickets these days”
argues Gordon the Chairman. “Sex!” But how will the locals react to the promise of a
sizzling sex comedy? All is revealed in this hilarious play and thus begins the chaotic buildup to an evening of extraordinary home-grown drama - an evening the locals would never
forget! (Running time approx 30 minutes)
Last Panto in Little Grimley (by David Tristram)
Sequel to Last Tango in Little Grimley, Last Panto in Little Grimley features the same
incompetent characters. Gordon, Margaret, Joyce and Bernard tackle the Christmas
