A riotous whodunnit in the
Agatha Christie style, with a little bit of Cleudo thrown in!
Featuring a cast of characters guaranteed to delight: Bunting the butler, an
English colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip, a shady French art
dealer and his moll, a bumbling buffoon of a Police Inspector with his
hapless Constable, and a well-meaning local sleuth who seems to attract
murder — they’re all here, and all caught up in the side splitting antics
which follow the mysterious death of the owner of a country manor house.
Will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom or
will the audience die laughing first?
To be presented in dinner theatre format with the audience seated around
tables. BYO food or order a gourmet hamper from Groundstone Café. Bar will
