A POSITIVELY British performance is preparing to make an appearance at a South Cumbrian theatre.

Created and performed by Gavin Robertson and Nicholas Collett, Done to Death By Jove has self proclaimed itself as the British detective genre gone wrong.

A cast of six bring a group of suspects and sleuths together to discover whodunnit, and how.

Except four of the actors are stuck by the side of the motorway in the van, and only those two knights of the Theatre – Sir Gavin and Sir Nicholas – have managed to get to the venue, but the show must go on.

Holmes and Watson, Poirot and Miss Marple join forces in a whirlwind of fast costume changes and misdirected acting hiccups. Even the set’s gone missing.

The show will take place at The Beggar's Theatre in Millom on November 12 at 7.30pm.
