Get ready to get your detective caps on for the next offering showing at the Old Nick Theatre in Gainsborough next week.

Summer End is a light hearted ‘whodunit’ penned by Eric Chappell, the creator of the hit television series Rising Damp.

It tells the story of Emily Baines and May Brewer, who share a room in Summer End retirement home.

Emily is convinced that her previous roommate Bella was murdered.

But she is cantankerous, frail and forgetful, and no-one really believes her.

Surely she can’t be right? Go along and find out, why don’t you?

The play runs from Monday 18th November to Friday 22nd November, starting at 7.30pm.

Tickets are on sale now priced at £8 or £7 concessions from the Box Office on 01427 239387.

Due to the stage arrangement there is limited seating for all of the performances and tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis, so book now to avoid dissappointment.
