Members of the group are all putting their unique touches to their characters during regular rehearsals at St. Michael’s.

It promises to be a show people will be talking about for a long time.

Adams said this is about the fourth murder mystery style show the group has staged and each one is different.

The story is based in the 1920s. Gangsters have taken over the city and the women are showing the spoils with a wide array of diamonds.

Babydoll Lolla’s Speakeasy forms the backdrop for the evening, with cheap gin and dazzling entertainment.

While Lolla’s right-hand man, Three Fingered Freddy, and his assistant Strong Arm Sam try to keep revellers under control, a dead body turns up and the intrigue begins. There’s plenty of plot turns with a long list of suspects to choose from.
