Classic ‘who-dunnit’ comedy theatre show comes to Newcastle

At 8pm on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th August, Newcastle Summer Season favourites, South Bank Playhouse will present their version of Charles Dyer’s classic murder mystery, Wanted: One Body!

Wanted One BodyWanted: One Body! is a classic murder mystery of disappearing bodies, sliding panels and howls in the night. A who-dunnit thriller with the accent on laughter.

The tale takes place in a classic old, dark house set amidst the rising flood waters and swirling mists on the edge of the lonely marshes.

This is Greenacres, the home of the Barraclough family, to which comes a pair of solicitors to read the will of the late, but not greatly lamented Mr Barraclough, only to learn that his body has mysteriously vanished along with the will!

Join South Bank Playhouse for a night of warmth, wit, thrills, and hilarious fun for audiences. Benefiting from almost forty years of experience, South Bank Playhouse consistently produces drama and comedy of the highest quality at its own rehearsal and performance space at Kimberley Drive in South Belfast.

Currently boasting more than 70 members, the company was formed in 1998 when two of Belfast’s foremost amateur companies, the Osborne and Trident Players joined together.

Annually, South Bank Playhouse creates three main productions in the Autumn, Spring and Summer alongside rehearsed readings and special company events.

With plays ranging from traditional classics to uproarious farces and some slightly more unusual pieces, the company have been an important part of the Newcastle Summer Season entertainment programme for many years.
