What's the Mystery Here?
Kitty Blaine, the casting director of a pre-war repertory company, has been stabbed and her body dumped in a well – a prop made of canvas and plywood. Plodshire Police Inspector Laura Lovelace is soon on the scene. There she finds
Sir Alan Blade-Beddington the Theatre’s artistic director
Marcia Mancroft the leading lady
Croydon Cooper the props manager
Leonora Longbridge a supporting actor who hankers after leading roles
Tarquin Topaz who longs to play Romeo
Jeff Mudge the stage manager
Lily Mudge the wardrobe mistress.
Cam Inspector Lovelace solve the mystery, or must she rely on the detective skills of the audience?
(Well, given the nature of the event, probably the latter.)
