The beneficiaries of the late Sir Reginald Bishop’s estate are in for a lot of surprises and theatre-goers are in for plenty of laughs, as “Murder at Checkmate Manor” plays this weekend at the Merrickville Community Centre. Directed by Timothy Molloy, Theatre Night in Merrickville’s spring comedy is a zany play within a play, presented to you by the earnest, but not-entirely-competent, ladies of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society.

Showtimes are Friday, April 13 and Saturday, April 14 at 7:30 pm; Sunday Matinee, April 15 at 2 pm. Tickets are $15 – available online at, or in person at Mrs. McGarrigle’s Fine Foods and the Merrickville Book Emporium. You can also call the producer at 613-269-3891 to reserve, or take your chances at the door.

Looking forward to entertaining you and channeling their ‘inner Carol Burnett’ are: L-R standing: Vicki Graham and Connie Coleman and seated Andrea Howard, Ann MacLaughlan and Heddy Sorour Roberts.
