THE HOSPITAL PLAYERS 

Scunthorpe's Oldest Amateur Dramatics Group - Established 1943

144th Production


Ladies in Retirement


By Edward Percy and Reginald Denham


Tuesday 30th March - Saturday 3rd April 1993

Based on a famous murder which actually took place at the end of the last century, and set in the 1880s, this play has become one of the most successful and frequently performed. An eerie atmosphere of mystery is evoked in a dark, lonely house on the marshes of the Thames estuary. The characters, presented with great psychological realism, and the strong vein of earthy comedy give the play a liveliness unusual for such a genuinely horrifying murder play.
