Dark comedy thriller comes to Shropshire

The Silence of the Lambs meets Last of the Summer Wine, as the dark comedy thriller, The Killer Question comes to Wem Town Hall on Thursday, November 3.

Following a critically acclaimed tour in 2021, Just Some Theatre return to the stage with award-winning writer, Dave Payne’s intriguing blend of Murder She Wrote and The Weakest Link.

Former game show champion, Walter Crump lives for murder, it was even his specialist subject on the nerve-shredding, general knowledge quiz show The Chair. But did his obsession with death ultimately lead to his own? That’s certainly what Inspector Black believes, and now it is Crump’s dopey widow, Margaret who finds herself in the chair – accused of her husband’s murder.

But as shocking details emerge about the events leading up to Walter’s final head-to-head, it quickly transpires that what started out as an open and shut case has turned into another game altogether: the cat and mouse variety, with more than one deadly twist in the tale.                    

Peter Stone, Jack Urry, and Tom Shaw star in this show produced by Manchester-based Just Some Theatre. But which actor will play which character? That’s up to the audience to decide!
