Theatre-lovers in Telford now have a new venue to visit, thanks to the Museum of the Gorge in Ironbridge, which is staging its first production this weekend.
The museum boasts a unique riverside theatre setting in the heart of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, and is celebrating its inaugural production with a play performed by Sundial Theatre and written by Shropshire author, David Tristram.
Inspector Drake and the Black Widow is a black comedy, with a murder mystery at its heart, beginning when oil tycoon John Johnson is found with a huge sword in his back.
Very funny and superbly staged, the play features actor Keith Minshull, whose career on the stage spans more than 30 years and includes performances in London’s West End, and Gill Jordan, who formed Sundial Theatre in 1996.
It is a professional company, touring children’s plays in schools, performing Victorian Music Hall shows and 1940s variety shows
The curtains will rise on the first performance on Friday evening (August 13) with a further show on Saturday and then every Saturday evening until September 11.
Doors will open at 7pm, with the play due to start at 7.30pm. Tickets, priced £10 and £7.50 concs, and full details are available at
