A whodunnit by Norm Robbins
Directed by Robyn Bull

A struggling guest house in the Peak District has a ghostly past, and a history of bad luck stories for its long list of previous owners. A guest dies under suspicious circumstances and secrets begin to emerge about the other guests, all of whom seem to have something to hide. The guests become housebound by a heavy snowfall and all that needs to be solved is who is genuine, and who is there for their own vengeful reason?

Has the ghost of Peak Lodge come back to avenge past wrongs?...

A Community Theatre production of 'At The Sign Of The Crippled Harlequin' by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd and New Zealand Play Bureau Ltd
