Tonight’s end of term show by the Adult Drama Class at Southside Community Centre, directed by Rebecca Kilbey, was “Mine’s A Bloody Mary!”, which was devised and scripted by the members of the class.

This was a witty, fast-paced murder mystery farce set in a remote mansion in the north of Scotland.  As in many of the best murder mysteries, the guests in the mansion are snowed in, the power has gone off, there’s a dead body, and almost everyone has a motive for murder.  But this is also a farce, so we have several highly unlikely situations taking place, and people constantly entering and leaving – a type of play that depends on everyone being in the right place at the right time, and there’s a lot of skill involved in making it look so easy.   

Once again, this was a hugely enjoyable show from the Adult Drama Class, and the cast seemed to be enjoying it as much as the audience were.  Some of the actors I have seen performing before, and I can definitely see a growth in confidence from last term.  As always, there are some individuals who stood out, but it was very much a group effort and all the actors deserve a mention – Hamish Alexander, Neil Welch, Paul Nangle, Pacian Clayton, Sara Lally, Gregor Wilson, Rosie Luckett, Cameron Paton, Kyle Schuller, Joseph Cameron, Gabriel Pinchuk, Richard Cox, along with Drama Assistant Emma Milligan standing in for one member who couldn’t attend tonight.
