Spider’s Web by Agatha Christie

Spider’s Web by Agatha Christie

Spider’s Web is a parody of the usual Agatha Christie fare – a light comedy version of a thriller.  The audience know “whodunnit” but the police inspector doesn’t.  There are multiple red herrings and just about everyone has a motive.  There’s even a butler – did he do it?  It’s an ensemble piece set in 1954 and there are a broad range of over-the-top characters to get your teeth into and make your own.

Director Liz Riley is keen to keep the twist at the end of the play a secret – even from BCP members not involved in the production!

Rehearsals will be on Sundays and Wednesdays, starting after 19 February 2022.  There are three male roles (40s-60s), two male roles (30s), Clarissa is 30s, Pippa is a teenager.  Playing ages of other roles are fairly flexible, and the Inspector and Constable can be any gender.

Auditions will take place at The Mill Arts Centre on 4 and 6 January 2022, 7.30pm, and will be a mix of sections from the play, as well as some group work.

Roles available as follows:
Sir Roland Delahaye
Clarissa Hailsham-Brown
Hugo Birch
Pippa Hailsham-Brown
Oliver Costello
Inspector Lord
Constable Jones
Jeremy Warrender
Mildred Peake
Henry Hailsham-Brown

You do not have to be a member to audition but will need to join if cast.  Membership option details can be found on the BCP website –

More details of the play can also be found on the BCP website –

Performance dates are 18th to 21st May 2022.  You will need to be available from 15 May for Technical and Dress rehearsals.

This is a great opportunity to be involved in what will be a fun show with a company who have a long history of producing theatre of the highest quality.
