Madam's Been Murdered, Tea Will Be Late

Play #: 1083
Pages: 75 pgs
Cast: 7 m, 6 w

Have you ever wanted to stay in an old, drafty English manor with a serial murderer and a ghost running loose in the dark? Who hasn't? Houndstooth Manor simply abounds with atmosphere. "We're lousy with it," the butler intones as he casts a suspicious eye over the paying guests, wondering who is next to be murdered. Will it be the pompous, retired Major who's always going on about how he stopped some uprising "with just a few well-chosen words and a flame thrower." Or maybe the honeymooning couple who know more than they'd like you to believe. Or maybe the former school teacher who's recovering from a nervous condition brought on when some of her students nailed her up in a keg. If hilarious dialogue, outrageous characters and a plot with more twists than a London road map is your cup of tea, you'll love this comedy!
