Scunthorpe's Oldest Amateur Dramatics Group - Established 1943

113th Production


By Charlotte Hastings

Tuesday 27th September - Saturday 1st October 1983

The breaking of the Great Dyke has flooded roads in the Fen country. At the Convent of Our Lady of Rheims homeless villagers are being housed. The flood has also trapped two prison officials and their prisoner, Sarat Carn, convicted of her brother's murder and on her way to the gallows. In spite of the damning circumstantial evidence, Sister Mary Bonaventure is certain of Sarat's innocence. Against the Reverend Mother's wishes, Sister Mary perseveres in trying to help Sarat uncovering hitherto unknown evidence until finally trapping the real murderer.

How the truth unfolds can be seen at the Civic Theatre between 27th September and 1st October.
