MALCOLM - SIMON ARNOLD
Contender for Thornton’s Biggest Marrow. Self-important chairman of the Village Fête Committee.
BUNNY - LORNA COTTRILL
His wife. Fed up with taking second place to a marrow. She’s discovered what Nigel can offer her instead.
NIGEL - ALEX TAGGART
Historical re-enactor. Spends the play in full Viking regalia, complete with plastic horned helmet. Takes re-enacting very seriously. In love with Bunny.
TRISH - SAMANTHA SOMERVILLE
Fête organiser. Efficient, but bitter that she doesn’t get the recognition she deserves for all her work.
FATHER MIKE - GAVIN MILLS
The vicar. Thinks he’s very trendy, but it would be nice if he actually listened to people more.
MISS PARMENTER - TRISH WELLER
Spinster of the parish. A Miss Marple type of character, dressed in a tweed skirt, cardigan and pearls. Rather formidable, in her own way, though she can’t quite distinguish between Ray Martin and the detective he plays on TV.
RAY MARTIN - TOM WELLER
An actor. Excellent as a TV detective, but out of his depth when faced with a real murder.
