“The 39 Steps” meets “An Inspector Calls” via Agatha Christie and Midsommer Murders.
A cast of six bring a comic flurry of suspects and characters together to discover whodunnit, and why.
Except, well, four of the cast are stuck by the side of the road in the broken down van, and only those two Knights of the Theatre – Sir Gavin and Sir Nicholas – have managed to get to the venue, but ‘the show must go on’.
Comic clichés from the Detective genre – Lords and ladies, shady servants, secrets, motives and cunning detective work abound in this genre-busting comedy from the masters of inventive silliness! That’s if the two of them can get through the play at all without losing the plot. Literally.
It’s not a new idea – it’s been DONE TO DEATH, BY JOVE – but not like this!
