The Real Inspector Hound

October 18th - 20th 2012
Erin Arts Centre, Port Erin
Also performed February 2013 at Erin Arts Centre as part or the Manx Amateur Drama Federation Festival of One Act Plays
and February 2013 at the Mike Hailwood Centre, Douglas on behalf of Sailing for the Disabled Charity


Tom Stoppard's one act play follows feuding theatre critics Moon and Birdboot, the first a fusty philanderer and the second a pompous and vindictive second stringer, are swept into the whodunit they are viewing. In the hilarious spoof of Agatha Christie-like melodramas that follows, the body under the sofa proves to be the missing first string critic. As mists rise about isolated Muldoon Manor, Moon and Birdboot become dangerously implicated in the lethal activities of an escaped madman.

"Witty and delicious parody of the fog bound whodunit." - Guardian
