Wednesday 10th January 7.45pm
Written by Peter Gordon
Performances 8th to 12th May 2018 at 7.45pm
Spoof comedy with Jane Marple character & Inspector Clouseau characters, fake accents and the poor Police Constable who gets shot – twice. Who dunnit? The colonel, the butler? Fabulous fun all round.
Cast consists of 5 males, 5 females, assorted ages.
Mildred – Late fifties. Moderately wealthy owner of Bagshot House.
Dorothy – Mildred’s niece. Late twenties and slightly simpering..
Bunting – The butler. Sixties. Pedantic and rather creepy.
Colonel Charles Craddock – Early sixties. Dresses in tweeds. Confident but blustering.
Margaret Craddock – The long-suffering but acerbic wife of Charles.
Elizabeth Hartley-Trumpington – Mid twenties. Attractive and stunningly dressed. Very high society.
Pierre Marceau – A french art dealer in his early thirties. An exaggerated french accent.
Joan Maple – A spinster in her sixties. Amateur sleuth.
Constable Thomkins – Young, bright, uniformed village policeman.
Inspector Pratt – Inept, posing and clumsy.
All welcome – simply turn up at the theatre in
Nelson Street, Thame at 7.45pm on Wednesday
