The Great Chocolate Murders

The Saturday Play: The Great Chocolate Murders


When people start falling ill all over 19th-century Brighton, everyone thinks it’s an attack of cholera caused by the lack of proper sewers. Little do the police suspect that it’s actually the work of a middle-aged spinster. Thwarted in love, Christiana Edmunds takes revenge on the citizens of Brighton with montelimars and pralines. Obsession, bad drains, royalty, murder and chocolate all play their part in John Fletcher ‘s play, based on a true story.

Producer/Director Kate McAll

With Sian Thomas, Chris Donnelly, Jennifer Hill, Dorien Thomas, Brendan Charleson.
