What's the Mystery Here?
On the stage, it's the final rehearsal of the North Undersfield Theatrical Society's performance of 'The Murder Mystery', but all is not well. Aside from the clash of egos, there's the small matter of the dead body... Appearing on stage at various points are:-
NUTS founder member Bob, who is, unfortunately, dead.
The scatty, loud-voiced Jenny.
Chris, the director of the murder mystery.
Felicity, the female lead.
Oscar, the male lead, hamming it up as usual.
The relatively reserved Amanda, Oscar’s wife.
The independent-minded front-of-house manager, Sophie.
Jason, a newcomer to the group.
In the chaos, there's a murder. Everyone has a motive. Can Inspector Abbot (with the help of the audience), discover whodunnit?
