Live Performance Photography: Strictly Murder

Live Performance Photography: Strictly Murder by Brian Clemens

Brian Clemens’ “Strictly Murder” marks the Saddleworth Players’ directorial debut of acting stalwart Sam al- Hamdani.

Although this is his first time at the helm in the Millgate Theatre, Sam is no stranger to the director’s chair having directed for several other societies, notably the Rochdale Curtain Theatre.

In “Strictly Murder” Brian Clemens, who is probably best remembered as the creator of The Avengers and The Professionals, has written an intricate, interesting and enigmatic story.

It’s April 1939, and an English couple, Peter and Suzy, are living in Provence in idyllic isolation, far, it seems, from the rumblings of the coming war. Their peace is shattered from within when Suzy discovers she has been betrayed when she discovers Peter is not the man he claims to be. Suzy’s life is thrown into turmoil as the possibility arises that Peter may in fact be a ruthless killer on the run. When a Scotland Yard detective arrives, events become even more complicated and frightening, lies, subterfuge and murder make this fast- moving thriller a dark and disturbing roller-coaster of bluff and double bluff.
