With the general election only weeks away, Nayland Village Players’ new production, Dead Ringer, set in 10 Downing Street, is highly topical.

When the Prime Minister dies of an apparent heart attack on the eve of a general election, an out-of-work actor is hired as his double.

But as he grows accustomed to his role it becomes apparent that all is not as it seems.

The comedy thriller promises to keep audiences guessing until the end.

Directed by Mike Poole, the play will be staged at Nayland village hall on April 16, 17 and 18, at 8pm, doors open 7.30pm.

Tickets are £7.50 (under 16s £6) from Nayland post office (afternoons) or by calling 01206 262808.
