pupils of St Winifred’s and St Albert’s arrive for a camping trip at the
beautiful Dumsey Meadow, deep in the heart of the
English countryside, they find themselves in a spot of bother – there has been
a double booking and only one school may camp there.
trying to decide which of them should stay, they become aware of some
mysterious things happening around them: What is the peculiar smell in the air?
Why is the Farmer always singing? Why do the cows and sheep appear to be
laughing? Why did the Dumsey apple harvest fail for
the first time in 300 years? And who is the hooded woman with the horrible
cackle? With sleuth-like commitment the children attempt to find answers to
these puzzling questions.
Set in the
1930s with a cast of colourful characters, this is a musical play for mystery
lovers everywhere with a flexible performing age range of 8 to adult.
