SYNOPSIS: SOMETHING’S AFOOT is a murder mystery musical that spoofs the works of Agatha Christie, especially “Ten Little Indians.” The play involves a group of people who are invited to the lake estate of Lord Dudley Rancour. When the wealthy lord is found dead, it becomes a life or death situation for all the guests to find out ‘whodunnit.”
The cast is comprised of stock characters typically found in the works of Agatha Christie! Very British!
