One of the cast in the Golden and Kilfeacle Drama Group’s play Murder Inn is not who they seem...

DOON Community Centre will be turned into the Murder Inn this Saturday night, February 3.

It is a one set, two act comedy with a cast of twelve – four males and eight females. One of the actors in the Golden and Kilfeacle Drama Group production is popular Doon hairdresser Lisa Shanahan.

Murder Inn is being produced by Jim Keane. Lisa said it is an intriguing murder mystery with comic tones throughout.

“It is set in at the Barnsley Inn, a dilapidated eighteenth century inn which is supposedly haunted by Marco, a knife throwing poltergeist.

“A group of tourists on a Ghosts and Ghouls tour of New England are forced by a storm to make an unscheduled stop at the Barnsley,” explains Lisa.

What looks to be an unpleasant and uncomfortable detour soon turns into a night of mayhem and madness as knives begin to pop up in the most unexpected places. 

As the night passes and the storm builds the body count rises and it’s up to the survivors to figure out who is the perpetrator and what’s more important to them - is who is next?

The play’s tag-line is, “Some survive Murder Inn” but will you?

It went down a storm with adults and children alike when it was performed before Christmas in Golden. It is now on tour and crosses county bounds this Saturday, February 3 at 8pm in Doon Community Centre. Tickets, adults €10 and children €5 are available from local shops, businesses and community council members.
