The Mystery of the Raddlesham MumpsWhen we were at Essex Uni for an american football final Sunday we noticed that The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps was playing in the campus theatre.  It's at the Aldeburgh Jubilee Hall the Saturday after next.  A fearsome but funny gothic tale of dynasty, death, revenge and hope. Lovely moral. - Michael Rosen
