The Phoenix Players are a well established amateur dramatics group based in Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire who have been running since 1945. We have performed many plays, pantomimes and musical shows over the years from whodunits through to farces, comedies and classic drama, from well known scripts to those written by our own members.

  • Murdered To Death

    In the mid-1930s, a wealthy widower invites several friends over for a dinner party, but things take a nasty turn when she’s murdered shortly before dinner. Now it’s up to the bumbling Inspector Pratt and the long-suffering Constable Thompkins to solve this crime, with the capable assistance of the local friendly unassuming amateur sleuth Miss Maple. In this hilarious spoof of the best Agatha Christie traditions, it soon becomes clear that the murderer isn’t finished yet, but will they be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom?
