Expect to see a humorous rollercoaster ride in a new play Cards on the Table opens at the Masque Theatre on Friday 31 March.

Based on Agatha Christie’s 20th novel, the story revolves around four characters who have apparently committed murder before and their potential motives for murdering again during the play’s opening scenes. The action starts with a game of bridge, which ends with the discovery of Mr Shaitana’s body.

Directed by Jane Philbrick, this production includes many well-known faces in the cast.

Leading the charge is Aubrey Hindle as the unfortunate Mr Shaitana. The four suspects are Anne Meredith played by Grace Brain, Mrs Lorrimer played by Sandy Gee, Dr Roberts played by Thomas Bowman and Major Despard played by Robert ­Shenton.

In charge of the sleuthing are Mrs Oliver played by Belinda Batt and Superintendent Battle played by Chris Bingham.

Cards on the Table is presented by the Fish Hoek Dramatic Society, the same society that brought audiences the CATA nominated Barretts of Wimpole Street last year.

The show will run until Saturday 8 April – excluding Sunday to Wednesday.
