The British Detective Genre – gone wrong!
Holmes and Watson meet Poirot and Miss Marple (alongside the usual suspects) in a spoof homage; who murdered Lady Fanshawe? Why is Matron Maudesly so friendly with one of the guests at the Clinic of Hopes and Cures? Why have the sound cues got mixed up?
A cast of six set about bringing a group of suspects and sleuths together to discover whodunnit, and how… except four of the actors are stuck in the van by the side of the motorway, 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’!
Expect a whirlwind of fast costume changes and misdirected acting hiccups in a show where even the set’s gone missing!
Running time: 80mins + interval
