Great news – our season of Snap! is going ahead on 10, 11, 12, 17, 18 & 19 September at 7.30 pm in the Muritai School Hall – thanks to the school giving their permission. 
If you have booked tickets online through Eventfinda your tickets will automatically be rebooked to the equivalent day in the new season (i.e. first Friday will be transferred to the new first Friday). If this is not suitable please contact Eventfinda to change to another day or request a refund. If you hold tickets bought through Rona Gallery they will be valid for the same day in the new season. If you need to discuss further please email
If you haven’t yet booked a ticket please do so very soon through Eventfinda. At Alert Level 2 we have to restrict ticket sales. Several nights are already heavily booked and door sales will be difficult because of crowding around the ticket desk.  
If we are still at Alert Level 2 we will be taking care to ensure social distancing in the Muritai Hall. Seats will be limited to 60 per night and spaced – though family groups of 10 or less are allowed to sit closer together. Please do not congregate in the foyer, around the ticket desk or at the back of the hall. When you arrive you will shown to your seat. Please let the ushers know if you are in a small group so that you can be seated together. 
Sadly, this also means we won’t be offering our usual refreshments before the show nor in the shortened interval – it might be a good idea to bring your own water or soft drink (no alcohol please). We will also be taking care to clean frequently touched surfaces before and after the performance. 
Sorry about all this – but we want to do our best to keep everyone safe – and still allow you to enjoy a great show!!!

Tickets are available online now from Eventfinda.

SNAP! by Fiona Farrell

Adapted from Photo Finish by Ngaio Marsh

Directed by Anne Manchester

10, 11, 12, 17, 18 & 19 September

at 7:30 pm

Muritai School, Eastbourne


A classic whodunit based on the novel Photo Finish by Ngaio Marsh – the New Zealand Queen of the genre. An extremely temperamental Callas-style operatic diva,  Isabella Sommita, has been hounded around the world by an odious member of the paparazzi. Her manager takes her to a grand but remote lodge on a South Island lake and invites the London-based portrait painter Agatha Troy (and her detective husband, Roderick Alleyn of Scotland Yard) to paint her portrait. We meet a cast of larger-than-life characters and watch as the brilliant detective unravels an operatic-style murder.

This play is currently in rehearsal.
