Two couples are lured to a remote location to be murdered one by one. Who
is the murderer and what do those about to be murdered have in common? Sound familiar?
Maybe, but are you really watching what you think you're watching ... and does the title
really mean what you think it means? Don't believe everything you see. Expect the
unexpected. "A teasing, very theatrical play, which dares to laugh at itself and its
genre until ... the Dead Man shows his hand ...". "This captivating thriller
pursues its theme in a singularly exciting manner ... an enticingly clever piece of
work." Seymour Matthews has three published plays, all of which are regularly
presented in the U.K. and around the world including the U.S.A., Canada, Australia and
Radio Group Celebrates SeaBritain 2005
The Radio Hut at the Muckleburgh Collection, Weybourne, home of the North Norfolk Amateur Radio Group, is featuring a special display of marine radio equipment inspired by SeaBritain 2005, a celebration of Britain's maritime heritage and achievements during the last 200 years. It depicts a ship's radio cabin in the 1970's, at a time when all ships at sea were still required to have one or more qualified Radio Officers on board to keep in touch with coast radio stations, other ships at sea, and provide 'SOS' communications in an emergency. The requirement ceased on January 31st, 1999, and this role and function, vital in its time, is already slipping into history. Associated with the marine radio display is a computer simulation of the last messages from the Titanic before it sank in 1912. This was the first occasion that a liner at sea called for help by radio, and lessons learned from the disaster resulted in new International Regulations for maritime wireless operating, including compulsory use of the international distress signal 'SOS', 24-hour monitoring of the international distress frequency, and radio "silence" periods twice an hour to ensure that emergency signals could be heard by all ships able to offer assistance.
