It seems forever since the riotous success the St. Michael's Players had in April with "Lend Me a Tenor" and fortunately the wait is nearly at an end. Their Autumn production is ”A Tomb with a View” by Norman Robbins and this will be running from 20-22 October at the same low prices as before.

Not only the world's most successful and prolific pantomime writer, Norman Robbins has entertained audiences for almost fifty years with his thrillers and comedies. Over ten thousand productions, professional and amateur, have taken his name around the world and he is published in several languages. During his forty-year acting career, he appeared on stage, television and radio with Ken Dodd, Ronnie Barker, Hylda Baker, Morecambe and Wise, Roy Hudd, Harry Worth, and many others. He is also a well known theatre director and provides occasional articles for Amateur Stage magazine.

"A Tomb with a View" is a popular, fast moving, gothic comedy thriller by Norman Robbins. With laughs and dead bodies in profusion, this play is suitable for all over the age of 10 years.

As the play opens, a wolf howls to the moon. In the Library, Hamilton Penworthy, solicitor, reads the will of the late departed Septimus Tomb. The eccentric Tombs are seething. They want to know - who is Miss Ash? Why has she been left a fortune? Ermintrude Ash, writer of romantic fiction, soon arrives with her secretary, young Peregrine. And then, mysteriously, the corpses start to pile up. Who will survive to inherit the millions? The plot twists and turns to its surprising conclusion. A comedy not to miss
