  • Murder Most Fowl!

Murder Most Fowl!

Red sky at night, farmer’s delight.
But red sky in the morning... and death comes a-calling!

The year is 1954 and world-famous crime writer *Agnes Dalrimple has been invited to the library at Milton Tweedings to deliver a talk based on her work. To assist with her presentation, the local drama group have been tasked with reading out Miss Dalrimple’s latest play, ‘Murder Most Fowl!’. The piece, set on a remote farm in the fictional district of ‘Scarsdale’, centres around the brutal murder of local farmer Amos Ramsbottom. Amos is found stabbed, hung up by his feet in a rickety barn which doubles as a chicken coop. But who would want to consign poor Amos to that great farmyard in the sky? Could it be...
Constance, his discontented wife?
Son Tom, of whom so much is expected yet who’s struggling to fill his father’s Wellingtons!?
Local butcher, Burt Lard, owner of the thriving business, ‘Lard’s Larder’? Or...
Lottie Belcher, Scarsdale’s bull-ish Lady Mayoress?
Veteran detective, Miss Mabel Nippitt, has her work cut out seeking out those chicken nuggets of truth to enable her to sort out the wheat from the chaff! It’s time to crack a few eggs...!!

The play-within-a-play nature of this piece adds a twist to a murder mystery that deliberately parodies the Agatha Christie era!

*Can be played by a male or female actor (Agnes or Arthur), hence the piece can be delivered by 4F/3M or 3F/4M.
