RolesMinimum Male roles = 9. Minimum Female roles = 6. Minimum total with doubling = 17. Minimum total without doubling = 18. No chorus. One of the female characters is optional (with only a brief appearance for the first scene). If this character is dropped then alternative dialogue is provided in the Producer's copy of the script.
Run TimeAround 90 minutes. [Estimated!]
StyleClassical 'Whodunnit' - a closed environment, a murder and lots of motives - as a full-length play. Single main set plus front-of-gauze scenes. Simple props.
SynopsisTheodore Shimmer is a businessman, smuggler, blackmailer and crook - a man who easily attracts enemies - and many of them seem to have been invited onto 'The Smug Juggler' for a Nile cruise. There's the fading film-star, the debt-ridden gambler, the dodgy doctor and the business rival. No surprise, then, that Theodore Shimmer is found dead. However, the manner of his death is more of a surprise. (Fans of this genre will be led to thinking that they are witnessing a cross between 'Death on the Nile' and 'Murder on the Orient Express' - only to be taken in by the author's cunning plot twist!)
