Murder in the elegant world of high fashion
The Company presents murder mystery Death in High Heels by Richard Harris, based on the novel by Christianna Brand.
It’s a big day at Christope et Cie, a small couture house off Regent Street. Mr Bevan will announce which of his staff he is sending to France to be the general manager of a new branch in Deauville. Will it be the talented and elegant Miss Doon or the loyal and long-serving Miss Gregory? Perhaps senior saleswoman Irene or showroom manager Dorian will get the job. Events take a dramatic turn over lunch, however, when Miss Doon collapses and dies. Inspector Charlesworth and Sergeant Wyler are sent to investigate a murder behind the gossip and glamour of a 1930s fashion house and find secrets and lies. The show runs from February 13 to 16 at the University Drama Studio, Glossop Road. Tickets are available from www.thecompanysheffield.co.uk/boxoffice. Prices are £9 on the door or £8.50 online and concessions are £6 on the door or £5.50 online. Group discounts are available.
