The first and second episodes of Tom Taylor's critically-acclaimed Charlie Montague Mysteries. These delightful one man plays are packed with nonstop laughs from start to finish and a revolving gallery of high society dames and eccentric waiters - all played by Taylor. Two gloriously silly murder mysteries for anyone who ever wished Bertie Wooster was a detective. The Game's a Foot, Try The Fish is the introduction to our hero, Charlie Montague. Inspired by the Hippodrome's latest mystery play, rakish aristocrat Charlie takes out an advert offering his services as a consulting detective and, one breakfast later, finds himself on his first case. What follows sees the gloriously inept love child of Agatha Christie and PG Wodehouse determined to prevent a murder. The chap dies. The Man with the Twisted Hip sees Charlie (not put off in the slightest by the ups and downs of his first case) accept an invitation to the opening of a new art exhibition where he is presented with the double-threat of murder and modern art. He is equally baffled by both.
The inept and accident prone Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society embark on bringing an ambitious 1920's murder mystery (Murder at Haversham Manor) to The Edinburgh Festival. Chris the arrogant head of the drama society has directed the piece and cast himself as the dynamic Inspector. Desperate wannabe actress Sandra and the genuinely doting Max struggle opposite each other as the romantic interest while hapless Dennis still can't pronounce 'facade'. An hour of hilarious disaster ensues; actors get knocked out, the play gets stuck on a loop and the set falls down before the final denouement. The production ends with an uproarious, totally improvised Q&A session with the cast, where the audience can put their own questions to the unfortunate troupe.
An experiment to separate virtue from wickedness in his own nature results in the respectable Doctor Jekyll releasing the demon within; a malevolent force which will eventually possess him body and soul... Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story has enthralled and fascinated the world for more than a hundred years - perhaps because a Mr. Hyde lurks deep within us all, watching and waiting.
A thrilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's dark psychological fantasy, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde immerses you in the myth and mystery of 19th century London's fog-bound streets where love, betrayal and murder lurk at every chilling twist and turn. Gripping, stylish and thought-provoking, this is unmissable theatre. Go on. Treat your dark side!
