This mystery, with elements of comedy is best described as a mixture of the wit of Noel Coward and the mystery plots and unexpected twists of Agatha Christie.
Renowned acting couple Edward and Soral Bennett have retreated to their country estate to recover from the disastrous opening of their latest stage venture. They are unexpectedly joined by a diverse group of ‘friends’ who bring their quirky personalities to the reunion. An unexpected murder unites the group as they, along with Bridget the maid and Jack the chauffeur, struggle to solve the murder. An unexpected and confused stranger joins to the group, and the result provides an interesting and surprising evening of murder, mixed with elements of comedy. Who is the guilty party? We don’t know until the final scene.
