Students at West Suffolk College in Bury St Edmunds star in murder mystery Reality Cheque





A new murder mystery play inspired by Agatha Christie is set to hit a Suffolk stage.

Students from West Suffolk College in Bury St Edmunds will be performing in a new all-female production called Reality Cheque.

It was written by course director Erica Dupuy who says the show has more twists and turns than a ten-minute ride on a fairground waltzer.

She said: “I’ve always been a massive fan of Agatha Christie and the play is an homage to her.

“It is intense and will keep you guessing until the end.

“The audience will feel they are part of the production and it is full of intrigue.

Musical theatre student Connie Dunne, 18, of Newmarket, said: “It is based on Agatha Christie’s novel ‘And Then There Were None’ and is set on an island.

“It has spooky elements and a bit of gore – this is Christie rewritten for a modern audience.”

She added: “This will take the audience on an amazing adventure.”
