  • Who Killed the Holidaymaker?

Who Killed the Holidaymaker? (or, ‘Olive and Let Die!’)

 

The ultimate game of cat and mous-saka!

 ‘Hooray, hooray it’s a ‘wally’ holi-day…!’

The action takes place at ‘the Spit of the Ocean Apartments’ in the coastal village of Kalamateya, on the picturesque Greek island of Minaksoss. It’s there, on a scorching summer’s afternoon, that holiday rep. ‘Kim Snead’s’ Welcome Meeting takes on added significance. On this occasion Snead’s primary objective is not to sell lacklustre trips at hugely extortionate process, but to ask the audience for their help in solving a particularly ‘Corfu-sing’ murder. German holidaymaker Wolfgang Von Humpf has been discovered dead, splayed out on his sunbed, with all the clues pointing to him having met a grisly ‘feta’. But which scheming ‘Partha-Non-Entities’ would be so cruel as to pack poor old Wolfie off to that to that great resort beyond the clouds? Snead, plus Senior Holiday Co-Ordinator ‘Mel Pitts’, embark upon a highly ‘dis-Crete’ game of ‘hide and tzatziki’ in the hope of smoking out the culprits. These include…

‘Nipper Jenkins’ and ‘Terry Winks’ (aka ‘the Cocktail Crew’), two young men anxious to soak up as much Greece as possible.

Popular lifeguard and hotel entertainer, ‘Jazz Handz’.

And, put-upon hotel receptionist, ‘Margaret Craven’.

And with the future of the entire resort at stake, the cry goes up from the reps., ‘Please help us, because, right now… it’s all just Greek to me!’

 

‘Who Killed the Holidaymaker?’ is a comic whodunit that satirises package holidays. Its ‘fun in the sun’ atmosphere naturally lends itself to performances during the summer… or is equally valid throughout the rest of the year, if only to remind everyone of those long ‘stress-free’ days around the pool!?

 ‘Who Killed the Holidaymaker?’ requires 8 actors, 3F/3M plus 2 of either sex. It has a ‘youthful edge’ to it and it’s implied that the characters Nipper, Terry and Jazz are youthful party-seekers (ie 18 to 30?). Wolfgang’s ‘dotty’ mother Greta, however, is at the opposite end of the age spectrum. The other 4 actors can be of any age.
