A French farmhouse kitchen is the setting for the nail-biting Exmouth Players' thriller Being of Sound Mind by Brian Burton which takes place at the Blackmore theatre from Monday, March 15, to Saturday, March 20, at 7.30pm.

Back in the director's chair for the first time since she wrote and directed the original pantomime Snow White and the Seven Lumberjacks is Jane Spamer. The panto has been published professionally. Some directors fight shy of thrillers but Jane is pleased to direct Being of Sound Mind. Last year she played a policewoman in the murder play Silhouette at the Blackmore.

The highly talented and experienced actress Fin O'Leary, who thrives in roles which portray a range of human emotions, is well cast in the lead role as the attractive, highly-strung Susan, who is recovering from a nervous breakdown. She finds herself facing a series of confusing and terrifying events. Mark Bazeley, who last appeared at the Blackmore in Anyone for Breakfast? plays her firm and ruthless husband, John. Mark's real life wife, Karen, is cast as, the rather chic, Judy.

Is she as kind and sympathetic as she seems?

Tickets �7 are available from the Magnolia Centre Kiosk, Mondays - Saturdays 10am - 2pm. Alternatively, call Daphne on 07905761485.
