Betrayal by Graham Lineham

Thursday 16th November

When Mrs Wilberforce puts a sign in her newsagent's window advertising 'A Room to Let' she's delighted when the mysterious Professor Marcus proclaims it perfect for rehearsing his unorthodox string quintet. However, she soon discovers that she is not making tea for a motley band of musicians but harbouring a gang of criminals. As his masterplan goes off the rails it begins to dawn on the Professor that in Mrs Wilberforce, he may have finally met his match. Originally an Ealing Comedy, now adapted for the stage.
