Saddleworth Players

Sophisticated, brittle and a wicked flirt!

Hi all, my name is Alayne Whitworth and I’m playing Lydia in the Saddleworth Players upcoming comedy murder mystery ‘Out of Sight, Out of Murder’.

This is my third ‘outing’ with the Saddleworth Players. Playing Mrs Reece, the doyenne of the Farndale Dramatic Society in the ‘Farndale Murder Mystery’ and then reprising her in the one act play ‘Sisters, Sisters’ was enormous fun and then to be asked to play Lydia in ‘Out of Sight’ … how lucky am I!

My character Lydia is described as sophisticated, brittle and caustic but with a good sense of humour. She is also a wicked flirt, so, all in all, an absolute joy to play!

Ably directed by Verity Mann, I’ve really enjoyed developing my character over the last few weeks and it’s been a pleasure watching the other members of the cast with theirs too. In my humble opinion, the casting of this play is spot on. Hopefully you’ll agree with me once you’ve seen the play.

With just over three weeks left to get our act together I don’t mind admitting that my nerves have started to jingle somewhat but I’m happy to report that all is well and we have the makings of an excellent play.


Out of Sight, Out of Murder’ will be performed by the Saddleworth Players at the Millgate Arts Centre, Delph, from 29 September–6 October. Tickets £9 (£5 students) from our online booking office.
