Murdered to Death
By Peter Gordon
Directed by Julian Woolford
A hilarious spoof of the best of the Agatha Christie traditions, this star-studded whodunnitt twists and turns with side-splitting antics and ever-increasing merriment and confusion.
Set in a country manor house in the glorious 1930’s, the colourful cast of characters guaranteed to delight include – Bunting the Butler (Nicholas Smith – ‘Are You Being Served’); Colonel Charles Craddock with the prerequisite stiff upper lip (Geoffrey Davies – ‘Doctor in the House’/ EastEnders); the bumbling local inspector (Trevor Bannister – ‘Are You Being Served’) and his Constable (Richard Elis ‘EastEnders’); and a well meaning local sleuth Miss Maple (Anna Karen ‘On the Buses / EastEnders) who seems to attract murder wherever she goes. Add to this a high society debutante, a shady French art dealer and his moll, and supporting cast, and you have the perfect recipe for uproarious fun and hysterical happenings. But following the mysterious death of the house’s owner, will the murderer be unmasked before every one else has met their doom, or will the audience die laughing first?
