Lady Amelia (Wendy Croft) searches for new ideas for her latest mystery novel as Sir Malcolm (Paul Lockwood) sleeps off the excesses of another idle day. Family friend Freddy (Gareth Atkinson) is persuaded to try and think of new ideas.
Meanwhile the hapless Vic Tim (Sam Smethurst) arrives and is promptly dispatched by an unknown assailant. Everyone tries hard to discover the murderer before he or she can strike again. The first problem, however, is how to get rid of Vic's body, not just because he is making an untidy mess on the stage, but also because he has to come back in ACT II as a policeman!
Smalls (Nick Gulvin), the butler, and Mabel (Caroline Blair), the maid, try to assist the inept police led by DI Sides (Rosie Wilson), and Sir Malcolm attempts to give the delicious WPC Eve Nunnall (Maeve Adair) a hand, but it's not in time to prevent the Producer being murdered. There is even a suspicion that someone may have poisoned the audience. Eventually Miss Marbles (Tina Seeley) arrives to reveal, Agatha Christie-style, the culprit.
This is a murder mystery - but not as we know it - which steadfastly refuses to take itself (or anything else) seriously.
