A drama group is set to perform its first play of the season at the Rose Theatre in Kidderminster.

Inspector Drake and the Perfekt Crime, written by acclaimed playwright David Tristram, will be performed by the Nonentities Society from Monday September 11 to Saturday September 16.

The comedy sees Inspector Drake face his greatest ever challenge as he attempts to unravel the answers to the perfect crime. From the mysterious Doctor Short marrying a warthog to finding out whether he murdered his fourth wife or if she murdered him first, these are just some of the many twists and turns faced in this action-packed play.

The closing night coincides with the theatre’s open day where those with an interest in the arts or finding a new hobby have been encouraged to come down to the venue between 10am and 2pm to find out more about getting involved.

Fans of David Tristram will also be able to see more of his work when he brings his show Unusual Shorts to the theatre on Friday October 6.

As well as offering some insights into comedy writing, he will introduce live extracts from his plays performed by the Flying Ducks Theatre Company.

Tickets can be bought by calling the box office on weekdays between 10.30am and 12.30pm with more information available at www.rosetheatre.co.uk
