Michaelmas Week 6
THE REAL INSPECTOR HOUND combines elements of metatheatre and farce with the 'whodunnit' formula of Agatha Christie and Conan Doyle and ludicrous comedy.
The play opens with two critics watching a play, presented with a group of characters trapped in the mysterious Muldoon Manor by adverse weather conditions and a lunatic apparently on the loose somewhere nearby
However, when one of the characters in the play is killed, Birdboot finds himself taking his place, and things only get stranger, as the lines between audience and play, critic and actor become bafflingly blurred.
