Charlie Franks is delighted to host an evening of murder and mobsters with renowned theatre production company, The Candlelight Theatre Companyfrom 7pm on Friday, October 6, 2017.

You’ll be right in the heart of the action and your role is to eat, drink, be merry, root out the truth and find the real criminal in a fast-paced murder story set in 1940s America.

Watch top-notch improvisation up close from some of Devon and Cornwall’s most talented actors and rise to the challenge of dishing up the cold-hearted killer to the law.
