LOCAL community group The Indalo Players recently presented “The Speakeasy Murder,” a theatre and dining experience at the Beachcomber restaurant on Mojacar Playa.
It was a complete sell out and very well received by the enthusiastic audience. Written by Indalo president Bill White and directed by Jane Read, the cast were raring to go and threw themselves into it with energy, verve and enthusiasm to a complete sell out.
The cast remained in character whilst mingling with the audience who were encouraged to ask questions intended to reveal the murderer’s identity.
There was a prize for the team that correctly identified the murderer and a quiz of relevant questions to the scenario that acted as a tie breaker. The winners were “The Landed Gentry.”
Prizes for best dressed gangster and moll were won by Janet Mills dressed as a Blues Brothers gangster and Paula Boyd as his moll.
Two young ladies from the Danza Vera Academy brought an extra touch of glamour and entertainment and the songs, lighting and sound effects all helped to bring about the experience of being in a 1920’s Speakeasy in Chicago.
You can see “The Speakeasy Murder” on Monday November 28, at El Cortijo, Bedar, the Miraflores Ballroom, Los Gallardos on Tuesday November 28, La Reva, Vera Playa on Friday December 1 and then at Kuki’s Mojacar Playa on Tuesday, December 5.
Tickets are €15 including the meal, are only available from the venues.
Further dates are planned during January.
