This brand new play, set in the mid 1930’s, is the prequel to the ‘Inspector Pratt’ trilogy of spoofs of the Agatha Christie ‘whodunnit’ genre.
It is Christmas Eve and Pratt, together with his unfortunate assistant Constable Mary Potter, is on a police fund-raising mission with his magic show. When they perform at a fine old country house they suddenly find themselves at the centre of a family get-together which is rapidly turning nasty and rather violent! Determined to make a name for himself, Pratt enthusiastically sets about solving an attempted murder, with the usual calamitous results!
