LOVE IS IN THE HEIR - A murder mystery
Aston Drama Society is proud to present "Love is in the Heir- a murder mystery", written and directed by Aston's own Tahani Baldwin!
It's no surprise that the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has had a detrimental effect on the world of live theatre. As a society, we've had to adapt and find new ways of staging performances for our audience. And whilst we've had some amazing performances in the last year (with a wonderful online Shakespeare show!), nothing beats performing in person again to a live audience, and we couldn't be happier to be back! And what better way to start in-person shows again...than with a fun and thrilling murder mystery!
Planning future society projects & keeping Aston Drama Society a thriving place for theatre would not be possible without the support of our audience. Tickets for the play are free for all, and we are asking for donations alongside to ensure that we can continue to give our members and audience the best possible drama experience!

WHAT IS THE PLAY ABOUT?
Set in the extravagant mansion of a renowned multi millionaire, Flora Remington and Sebastian Longbottom III call upon their loved ones to band together as they celebrate their union of love.
However, when tragedy strikes and the only witnesses were their warring families, a detective is called in to investigate the scene of the crime. When shocking revelations and ungodly truths are revealed, who will be left standing, and who will dare to strike next?
Welcome, distinguished guests, to the wedding of the century. Below, you will find tickets to enter this prestigious event and witness the binding of these two beloved souls.
