Murder by Membership Only is a 'whodunit' set in an exclusive London club for female mystery writers. After nine delightfully eccentric women gather there, the most successful writer is poisoned.

One of the remaining eight did it, but whom? As Hester Tandy says, “How would it look if a roomful of mystery writers had to go to the police to solve a murder that took place under their very noses?” And so the ladies decide to solve the mystery themselves.

There is much to puzzle these experts. No one has a reliable alibi. Many of the characters have a strong motivation for killing the ghastly Octavia Sturges.

Then the phone line is cut, another murder occurs and it is revealed that no-one is as she seems.

Audiences will enjoy the many surprises in this intriguing play, as well as the suspense and humour.

“The play is entertaining for everyone,” says the director, Christina Stachurski. “But murder mystery fans can really get their teeth into it, and are likely to be kept guessing until the end.”

Murder by Membership Only is a perfect play for Riccarton Players, with its big range of complex characters. “We are glad to have found another play with excellent roles for our many talented female actors,” says the director.

“In the past two years, After September and The Guid Sisters – both all women casts - have been popular with audiences because they feature humorous recognisable characters.

Murder by Membership Only is the same.
