Set in a country manor house in the 1930′s, this hilarious spoof of the best of Agatha Christie traditions assembles a cast of classic Christie characters guaranteed to delight. The play introduces the inept and bungling Inspector Pratt, who battles against the odds and his own incompetence to solve the murder of the house’s owner. It soon becomes clear that the murderer isn’t finished yet; will the miscreant be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom or will the audience die laughing first?
