WITH an abundance of changing identities, twists and surprises, Melville Theatre’s latest offering has been described as a “Russian doll of a play”.

Written by Roger Leach and Colin Wakefield and directed by Joan Scafe, Audience with Murder moves from a seemingly innocuous domestic play reading, through a murder- mystery in the classic style, to a final terrifying and violent climax.

A clever and compelling multi-layered style drives the play, delivering a witty thriller full of unexpected twists.

It was first produced at the 2004 Edinburgh Festival, subsequently receiving much critical acclaim at London’s Jermyn Street Theatre in 2006.

“Audience with Murder appealed because of the sheer quirkiness of the concept and the fact Melville Theatre hasn't done a murder-mystery for a while,” Scafe said.

“It has plenty of twists to keep the audience on its toes and make them think about what is really happening.

“When the cast had their first reading, I was quite happy to see them discussing the script, spotting what was happening and getting what was going on.”

Initially performing while at school in the UK, Scafe has more than 35 years’ theatre experience in WA after she first took to the stage in a Murdoch University production of The Bacchae at Dolphin Theatre in 1977.

She appeared in Melville Theatre’s inaugural show Not Now Darling in 1982 and has appeared in a plethora of plays since – and was nominated for best actress for her role in Three Tall Women at the 2009 Finley Awards.

More recently, Scafe has appeared in Calendar Girls at Garrick Theatre and On Golden Pond at Harbour Theatre.

With Audience with Murder, she believes her main challenge is the lack of stage directions in the script.

“I have to look carefully at what’s going on – and what I know is coming next – to inject movement into what could be a very static play,” Scafe said.

“There are four in the cast so I’m pleased to have two experienced actors and two very keen young people who want to learn.”

Melville Theatre is on the corner of Stock Road and Canning Highway, Palmyra.
