This is our Caribbean Murder Mystery going out on Zoom to a national u3a audience of up to 500.  The cast include several Madeley & District members, plus others recruited nationwide.  It is a comedy with the challenge of working out whodunnit.  Set on the exotic island of St.Tricia it features a group of hapless u3a holiday-makers who encounter some very dodgy residents, notably Mami Wata, the witch who dispenses voodoo curses.  Mysterious deaths result, but our super sleuth Hercules Parrot does not believe they are due to voodoo curses, and you don’t believe in voodoo, do you?  Forget your lockdown blues, get dressed in your wildest holiday clothes and be sure to wear a sunhat.  Tickets (free) can be obtained by clicking this link 

This will bring up the entry form and you then click on the green  “Register”.  Don’t delay, these tickets are likely to be snapped up quickly.  For further info contact Chris Wright  01782-750870.
