Weaving Wodehousian witticisms, farce and highly quotable one-liners into a pair of intriguing 1930s whodunits, award-winning writer-performer Tom Taylor’s rakish aristocrat and first-time detective, Charlie Montague, must prevent a murder. The chap dies.
Not put off in the slightest, Charlie attends the opening of a new art exhibition where he is presented with a double-threat: murder and modern art. He is equally baffled by both.
Packed with nonstop laughs from start to finish and a revolving gallery of high society dames and eccentric waiters – all played by Taylor – this show was a smash hit at the Edinburgh Festival where it collected a host of four- and five-star reviews.
“Tom Taylor has produced a show so funny at one point I thought my lungs were going to burst … a masterpiece in the genre, fans of the Noel Cowards of the world will not want to miss this show” Broadway Baby
“Armed only with a chaise longue, smoking jacket and tons of charm … this is a gloriously silly and subversive murder mystery that delights its audience” The Stage
“If you like your Agatha Christie, or particularly your Dorothy L Sayers, you’ll enjoy the substance beneath the humour and the frequent nods to detective fiction tropes. I absolutely loved every moment of it … an astoundingly funny show” Fringe Guru
