Additional Info

Scored for eight instruments (but can be performed with one piano) this play is a musical spoof of the whodunnit genre which takes a strong satirical poke at Agatha Christie murder mysteries as well as at many musical styles of past years. Ten people are stranded in an isolated English country estate during a raging thunderstorm. One by one they are picked off by cleverly fiendish devices.
