Unhappy Medium (cast: 4f)

Three members of a local Ladies’ Guild get more than they bargain for when a psychic booked for one of their evenings turns out to be uncannily accurate in this "dead silly" comedy.

This play is exceptionally easy to stage and can be performed in any venue.

“A play in which the Hobnobs can’t be got out of the safe because no one knows the combination, has got a lot going for it!”

“The medium in this piece could give Madame Arcati a lesson in mischief-making!”

“This play is seriously funny!”
