StyleComedy spy spoof for youth theatre. Lots of locations but not much set!
SynopsisWhen Anatoly Kazmarov, recently convicted head of international criminal gang STINK, is sprung from a top-security escape-proof prison, it is obvious that someone even more fiendish than Kazmarov is involved. This is clearly a job for The Secret Department's top man, the suave, debonair (but largely inept) Dirk Smirk. It's just as well that the impossibly beautiful Captain Tremaine is on hand to help him out as a plot to bring the world order to its knees gets underway.
