Hot on the heels of our sell-out production of the much-loved BBC TV comedy ‘The Vicar of Dibley’ in November 2022, we have chosen something completely different for March 2023.


TRAP FOR A LONELY MAN’ is a fast-paced psychological thriller that keeps everyone guessing, and will be performed in Holt Village Hall from Thursday 23rd to Saturday 25th March.  To be directed by Simon Welch making his directorial debut with Holt Players.


Written by Robert Thomas the play is set in the French Alps where newly married Daniel has reported that his wife, the wealthy heiress Elizabeth, has gone missing after an argument. A local priest brings the news that his wife has returned, but instead of being delighted, Daniel is confused when he sees the woman is not his missing wife after all. However, she seems to know him and explains that her new husband has bouts of mental illness so does not recognise her. Is Daniel confused or is there a plot afoot? As the play progresses, it becomes clear that nobody is who they say they are, until all is revealed in a final twist.......


Man - Dominic O'Connor

Woman - Liz Hume

Inspector - John Fletcher

Priest - Felix Byrne

Merluche - Allan Schonfeld

This is a play full of suspense, twists and turns – and well worth seeing. We will shortly announcing a new way of buying tickets for the performances on Thursday 23 March,  Friday 24 and Saturday 25 March.  Info will appear on  our Box Office page mid February.
