Gunfight at the OK Corral

Monday 23rd September 19.30

The gunfight at the OK Corral is one of the most famous incidents in the history of the American West. That fame has been largely generated by featuring in numerous films over the years.

The name at least will be familiar to many filmgoers and certainly to anyone interested in westerns or “Wild West” history in general.

Kevin ‘Eggheads’ Ashman examines the history and then the myth, as reflected in the various film treatments. These have ranged from reasonably accurate to wildly inaccurate, and from embracing the good guy/bad guy mythology,to attempting to overturn or revise it. Changing fashions in westerns and in American cinema more generally have naturally played their part.

Back by popular demand is our murder mystery supper evening. A cast of decidedly shady characters with truly criminal acting skills invite you to pick your way through the red herrings and double entendres to winkle out the dastardly culprit who committed a murder before your very eyes. Half way through the show a fish and chips supper will be served to give you a break and a chance to whittle down your list of suspects. No-one leaves the building until the culprit is uncovered and a winning team is announced. Fabulous farcical fun.

This time a re-examination of the murders at 10 Rillington Place, London in the 1950s which resulted in the deaths of several women and a baby.

The case remains a source of controversy to this day and this presentation shows how the hanging of an innocent man allowed the real killer to continue with his sadistic and salacious attacks. Contains challenging material.
