The Pantocrime

Tragedy! A murder in a show! But who can possibly solve the case? Near-ta Theatre employed top detective Dale Adequate in their Christmas show, ‘The Pantocrime’.


A theatre company’s pantomime is ruined as a cast member is killed, and everyone involved with the show is a suspect. Whodunit? Well, that was for the audience and Dale to work out, as Near-ta Theatre offered an original take on the traditional British Christmas show. Heroes, heroines, villains, dames, and fairy godmothers were gathered there in a murder-mystery for all the family!


Written by Ciaran Clarke, and directed by Hannah Stephens and Daniel Richards, Near-ta Theatre offered a show full of Pantomime goodness, intrigue and some very different Christmas carols. Be prompt… Some body corpsed on stage…
