Pull up a seat, sit back and enjoy Whitby Amateur Dramatics Society’s (WADS) Easter production.

WADS are in their 102nd year and are showcasing their black comedy Natural Causes to audiences this weekend.

Natural Causes by Eric Chappell and directed by Alison Steele promises to be very entertaining and marks a change of direction from what WADS have been producing over the past couple of years.

Contracted by Walter Bryce, Vincent – a professional suicide merchant – arrives at his country house and mistakenly assumes that the potion was intended for Walter’s consumption.

It then becomes clear that Walter’s wife Celia is the client — or is she?

Why are her suicide letters all typed and unsigned?

After several thwarted attempts to poison various characters, will anyone actually manage to drink the potion?

Led by a local cast made up of familiar faces and some newcomers the performance promises to be full of laughs.

Performances start tomorrow evening, Monday and Tuesday at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £7, concessions £6, and are available from Whitby Pavilion, Whitby Tourist Information Centre or alternatively by calling (01947) 604855.
