The comic whodunit Secondary Cause Of Death starring Jeffrey Holland (Hi-de-Hi), Judy Buxton (On The Up) and David Callister (The Bill) comes to the Devonshire Park Theatre from March 2-5.

Colonel Charles Craddock has converted his property into a hotel and Miss Cynthia Maple has arranged a murder mystery for the evening’s entertainment. Inspector Pratt then arrives at Bagshot House with grim news for the Colonel, but that’s just the beginning. An Agatha Christie spoof type whodunit with exploding teapots, falling flowerpots, false identities and more twists than seem possible this play is bound to amuse even the stalwart traditional murder mystery audience, appealing to farce fans and comedy drama enthusiasts too.
