Murder at Gobbler’s Wood

by Robin French, Dennis Kelly, Enda Walsh

“It’s brass band music. The brass band is jolly. Like when Ground Force have finished their first day and Alan, Tommy and Charley are off to the pub for a feed of pints.

It’s Summery music and the vision we open on is clouds. Summer clouds but with a hint of grey. A hint of grey suggesting the horribleness that is about to unfold in this idyllic environment…”

It’s five days until Caulston’s annual cake fete when a body is found in Gobbler’s Wood. With the village caught in a baking frenzy, the Detective Inspector and his trusty side-kick must work alone to uncover the murderer before they strike again…

Amidst the rolling fields and warm sun of this year’s LATITUDE Festival, Paines Plough draws open the curtains on a disturbing and hilariously dark plot co-written by three of the UK’s most exciting playwrights.

A Paines Plough and Latitude Festival production.
