Scunthorpe's Oldest Amateur Dramatics Group - Established 1943

104th Production

Murder With Love

By Francis Durbridge

Tuesday 16th - Saturday 20th September 1980

Many people had their reasons for disliking and brutally murdering Larry Campbell, none more than lawyer David Ryder. Not only had he lost his wife to Campbell but he also held him responsible for her death and for that of his young son.

There was also Jo Mitchell, a columnist he was blackmailing, and his own brother who Larry was forcing into signing a business contract.

In this production Francis Durbridge, probably known best as the author of the popular Radio plays 'Paul Temple,' has woven together an intricate plot of deceit, suspicion and blackmail completed by a second knifing which should keep the enthusiastic amateur detective on their toes.
