THERE'S still time to see a truly horrific farce of murderous proportions on Portland this week.

The cast of A Tomb With A View, which is showing at the Royal Manor Theatre on Portland on Saturday, went on a whirlwind tour of the isle to generate interest in the play.

Neil Highley, in Julius Caesar toga, said: "We started at the Bill, seeing as naturally it would be the first

place any upstanding Roman would go, and even though it was quite tempestuous we grabbed a map and had quite a few people stop and ask what the flip we were on!"

The tour then took the cast to Tesco at Easton, and on to Easton Square, then the arcade, sweet shop and into Cards n Celebrations.

Neil said: "We then went up to the Olympic rings and had a selfie with a lovely couple who were visiting the island for the weekend. Then we looked into all the shops and pubs in Fortuneswell, played a game of darts in the star, read a few newspapers in the post office shop, discussed literature in the Royal Portland Arms and finished with a deserved drink in the Cove House Inn. All in a little under two hours!"

Neil added: "I think the funniest part was when we were strolling down through Fortuneswell, in full get up, and a couple of kids zipped past on scooters and shouted "The Greeks are coming!". We looked around, and

to our relief, no Greeks could be seen!"

A Tomb With A View is set in the dusty old library of Tomb House, where an inheritance is being fought over by the Tomb family and an unexpected arrival from London.

It is showing at the Royal Manor Theatre on Portland nightly at 7.30pm until Saturday. Go to for tickets.
