A hilarious new comedy whodunnit from the makers of Mystery Radio Theatre.
It is 1950 and Vera Brady travels to a mysterious tropical island where she has to contend with a baffling locked-room murder, a werewolf and, worst of all, her stupid ex-husband. She will need to keep her wit dry and her martinis drier if she is going to solve this puzzle.
Four suspects – the prim secretary, the tough bodyguard, the elderly nanny, and the drunken groundskeeper. One of them must be the murderer. And possibly a werewolf. Join us for a good old-fashioned, comedy murder mystery. Can you spot the killer?
“A sublimely silly and frenetically farcical comedy…” – Peter Green, The Melbourne Observer
“…a surreal journey that builds in ludicrousness. The script is witty and fresh, keeping the audience guessing and trying to understand the absurdities that take place – only to be surprised.” – Lucinda Naughton, Theatre Travels
