MURDEROUS CROSSING

On Wednesday 17th July, 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students had the opportunity to enjoy a performance of Murderous Crossing, a play by David Landau. The Montevideo Players produced a wonderful version of this Agatha Christie style comic mystery.

 The story is set in the year 1923 and the audience members are passengers on board the HMS Victoria as it crosses the English Channel. The famous Inspector Clurrot has tracked down a homicidal mastermind hiding out on board. Meanwhile, the ship is the vessel of matrimony for the Comtesse Nicole Follette and John D. Rothschild-a marriage encouraged through financial need and murderous greed.But not everything is as it seems, and it turns out that the English Channel is not the only thing being crossed. 

 Students were recruited to stand in for the best man, bridesmaid, mother of the groom, and father of the bride. Students also had to help Inspector Clurrot solve the mystery. Altogether it was a memorable performance which was really enjoyed by students and teachers.
