Sherlock Holmes… Miss Marple… Hercules Poirot… the list of great murder sleuths goes on. And now, let us introduce you to another name…Inspector Pratt!
Yes you read that correctly! Here he comes to save the day... or is that his reputation... as the Chameleons proudly present:
This hilarious comedy is from the writer of Out of Focus and co-writer of Murder in Company and it proves to be a corker. Inspector Pratt (see,you’re laughing already!) is called to a country home to deal with the cold-blooded murder of the lady of the house…eventually he finds the front door! Yes, very soon we find he’ll struggle to fight his way out of a paper bag let alone solve this crime.
He isn’t alone of course, a trusty Constable at his side, struggling to make sense of it all…and stay alive! The suspects? Well, there’s plenty and all in true whodunnit style! There’s a society girl, a retired colonel, a french art dealer and a drunken butler to name but a few. All have skeletons in their closets and none are what they seem. Doors crash; accusations, accents, and terrible puns fly and hilarity results as the Inspector desperately struggles to hold on to the case…not to mention his sanity!
A full cast are being put through their paces as we speak, so if you need a giggle there’s only one thing for it…buy those tickets!
