NIGHT MUST FALL 

by

EMLYN WILLIAMS

 

 

ST PATRICK'S DRAMATIC SOCIETY will be staging the gripping psychological thriller NIGHT MUST FALL by Emlyn Williams at Pavilion Theatre, Dun Laoghaire next month.

 

Set in 1930s rural England, Dan (Niall McGeorge) has committed one murder and there is little doubt that he will kill again. A dashing young man, he insinuates himself into the affections of the bitter, self-pitying Mrs Bramson (Madelyn Chapman) and her servants – the no-nonsense cook, Mrs Terence (Fiona Darling) and the innocent young maid, Dora Parkoe (Carina Cummins). Only Olivia Grayne (Jilly McDonough), her niece and reluctant companion, remains unconvinced by Dan as she considers the merits of marriage to the pompous, hearty Hubert Laurie (Tom Delahunty).

 

With the arrival of Inspector Belsize (Michael Stokes) of Scotland Yard to investigate  the murder and the sudden interest of the national press in the story,  tensions rise in the isolated household. The cast also includes Rosemary O'Loughlin as Nurse Libby and Tony Perrem as the Lord Chief Justice.

 

Directed by Judith Elmes, NIGHT MUST FALL by Emlyn Williams runs nightly at 8pm at Pavilion Theatre, Dun Laoghaire from Wednesday 16 November to Saturday 19 November inclusive.  Tickets are available, price €19/€16 (concessions), from Pavilion Theatre Box Office (tel 01-231 2929) or www.paviliontheatre.ie (free booking on line).

 

And finally... it was great to be part of the recent parish organisations coffee morning   in the Northover Hall and to meet a number of potential new members.  We'll be in touch with those who said they'd be prepared to assist in some capacity with our set.
