Deep in the heart of the English countryside, the children of St Winifred's and St Albert's schools find themselves caught up in a curious mystery when they go on a camping trip to the beautiful and peaceful Dumsey Meadow.
With sleuth-like commitment the children attempt to find answers to some puzzling questions -- Why do cows and sheep appear to be laughing? Why is the Farmer always singing? Why did the Dumsey apple harvest fail for the first time in 300 years and who is the scary old woman with the horrible cackle?
Set in the 1930s, this is a musical for mystery loves of any age and will have you of the edge of your seat trying to work out 'why-is-it', 'what-is-it' and 'who-dunnit'?!
The Mystery of Dumsey Meadow was first performed at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford, UK on 7th December, 2006 by the Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre ACT 2.
