Lorrha Drama Group Present 'Wanted - One Body!'
Directed by Mary Hynes in Lorrha community hall on 18th, 19th, & 20th January at 8.30pm.

Greenacres - family home to the late Charles Barraclough and the icing on the cake for his future heirs. But who stands to inherit his millions and will it be by foul means or fair? Family and faithful servants wait with baited breath to hear the last will and testament, only to discover that this death holds nothing but surprises! As the flood waters rise, confusion reigns and the body count increases in this farcical chiller.

It's a classic whodunit, with mysterious long lost relatives, brooding butlers and Hector (the faithful family guinea pig!) Who will be the next victim, and is Charles Barraclough really even dead? Only time will tell...

Wanted - one body! ... But whose will it be?
