Set in a newly renovated health resort and following the unexpected death of famed chef Edith Chiles, slick and cynical manager John Stone teamed up with mystery writer Ed Parlor to find the cause and the murderer, in a crazy race against time. Clues pointed to a sinister box of chocolates and a variety of suspects from the outlandish characters working at the resort.
An American play combining comedy and mystery, "Death by Chocolate" highlighted the talent of our newcomers, who embraced their roles with flair and enthusiasm.
Discussion that ensued decided that the Brits take the honours for comedy rather than American based shows.
Next month our play is set on a Queensland station following the war. "Here under Heaven", by Australian writer Mona Bond, deals with racism and gender bias in the 1940's. Look forward to seeing you all in May.
