CURTAIN Up on Murder, which opened at the Fisher Theatre at Bungay last night, continues its mystery and suspense this evening and tomorrow.

The play by Bettina Manktelow is director by Karen Carter, and the plot surrounds an amateur dramatic company rehearsing a thriller at the end of the pier. However, they find they are locked in, and members are gradually being killed off. Is the culprit one of them or someone else locked in the theatre who will not stop till they are all dead?

It is at 7.30pm nightly and tickets are £6 (£5 concessions).

On Wednesday, Dave Swarbrick and Kevin Dempsey, whose musical partnership stretches back to the early 1980s, are presenting a concert. The programme will explore long forgotten and early English traditional tunes, and traditional and baroque songs, injecting new life and verve into the largely unknown music. The concert is at 8pm and tickets are £12.

On Thursday the John Whitehead Trio with Sally Voakes are entertaining, and next Friday Jason Robert Brown's play Last Five Years is being staged. It uses a form of storytelling in which struggling actress Cathy travels backwards in time as rising novelist Jamie travels forward. The characters do not directly interact except for a wedding song in the middle as their time lines intercept. It is at 7.30pm and tickets are £8 (£7 concessions).

October is completed by the traditional Pumpkin Night Special on Saturday, October 31 with spooky goings-on on hallowe'en, including the telling of ghostly tales in the cellar bar and an exhibition of hallowe'en night art, in conjunction with the Bungay Pumpkin Festival which takes place in Bridge Street.

Tickets for all events at the Fisher are available through the box office on 01986 897130 or via the website: www.fishertheatre.org
