The Empty Stage is an innovative murder mystery from the pen of award winning playwright Tobias Nicholls.

A brand new play that is unique in the fact that it is specifically tailored to each venue that it appears in.

An unscheduled rehearsal is called and during it rising star Carina Harris is found dead. Now the plays director must turn detective in order to find out which of his temperamental cast members is the killer.

No easy task as the play’s expertly written script takes many twists and turns before the killer is revealed.

This new play, which is on the second half of its tour, will be stopping at the Fisher Theatre in Bungay on July 29 at 7.30pm.

Tobias is 36 and has lived in Norfolk for most of his life and has spent all his working life in the theatre, either off stage, covering everything from steward through technical, stage management to general manager, or on stage as an actor/writer which is his first love.

In 2011 he left the theatre and decided to try to take his talents to a wider audience.

Tickets, which cost £10, are available from 01986 897130.
