This is a good old fashioned murder mystery farce, set in a sinister old library, presided over by a portrait of a grim faced, mad eyed, old man. There, a dusty lawyer reads a will (involving some millions of dollars) to an equally sinister family, one member of which has werewolf tendencies, another wanders around in a toga and a third member is a gentle old lady who plants more than seeds in her flower beds. And what about the sympathetic nurse and the author of romantic novels? Are they what, or more than, they seem to be?
By the third act, there are more corpses than live members left in the cast. All is revealed as the plot twists and turns to its surprising conclusion. Secret passages, poison, Roman emperors and dodgy lawyers. Could you possibly want more? And what could be more “Christmassy” than a stage littered with dead bodies……?
