Banbury Cross Players’ production of Anthony Shaffer’s Whodunnit? is set in the grand library of Orcas Champflower Manor.

This tongue-in-cheek pastiche of a 1930s murder mystery opens with the voice of the murderer inviting the audience to follow the clues about to be presented as they will lead them to the identity of the murderer. During the course of the evening, one of the dinner guests, Andreas Capadistriou, informs each of the guests that he has the means to blackmail them.

Not surprisingly he meets a spectacularly sticky end, but...whodunnit?

The wide variety of gloriously over-the-top characters (an old sea dog, a dotty aristocrat, a black sheep, an unconventional Scotland Yard detective, to name but a few) guarantee an evening of fun.

Whodunnit? runs until Saturday at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury. Tickets are available from the Mill box office (£8.50, £7.50, no concessions tomorrow or Saturday) on 01295 279002 or online at

Curtain up at 7.45pm.
