  • A Write Rumpus Down the Rat and Rooster

The full bodied pub-based whodunit… no half measures!
The action takes place at the Rat and Rooster Public House in Sewerton-Mumps. Beth Sellas is the world famous writer of the Crystal Bullett detective series. At the request of Sewerton’s Writers’ Guild Beth is returning to her home town to discuss her writing. Arriving early, and feeling strangely uneasy, the famous author pops into the pub to kill time. Doing so, however, leaves her vulnerable to a terrible crime which is about to hit her with both (beer) barrels. When the laptop containing Beth’s latest novel is stolen, the finger of suspicion points towards a cast of pub-based familiars...
Beth Sellas, the internationally renowned author herself.
Colin Sick, town layabout and pub regular.
Candy Barr, local lass and barmaid at the Rat and Rooster.
And Walter Melon, the old-timer who likes nothing more than a quiet pint on an afternoon.
With the imminent threat of the pub’s landlord, Mal Practiss, being released from prison, host Sam Manilla is under pressure to close the case quickly!
This piece is written for 2M/2F.
