What's the Mystery Here?
It's 1921 and Stallard's distillery in Birmingham is trying to muscle-in on the London trade, much to the displeasure of the Camden mob. Things come to a head at the distillery, where the audience are being given a guided tour. There they meet:-
Sam Stallard, new owner of Stallard and Son.
Sam's brother, Charlie Stallard.
Clara Stallard, their sister.
Patriarch of the clan, Henry Stallard.
Cece Stallard, mother of Sam, Charlie and Clara.
Roland Finch, an employee at Stallard and Son.
Sam's right-hand man, Alfie Jones.
Lonnie Lockwood, leader of the Camden Mob.
Lonnie's right-hand man, the Italian Don Di Salvo.
Lonnie's daughter, Rosalie Lockwood.
Margo Clarkson, an Agent of the Crown.
Of course, there's trouble. Not just the kidnapping, but a very inconvenient corpse. Can the audience work out who was responsible for Death at the Distillery?
