Take a well-known plotline like a murder mystery from the famed writer Agatha Christie, add 1930’s English music hall-type songs, liberally lace the play with satirical, funny, over the top comedy and you have ‘Something’s Afoot’, a zany, entertaining musical.
Ten people are stranded in an isolated English country house during a raging thunderstorm.
One by one they’re picked off by cleverly fiendish devices. As the bodies pile up in the library,
the survivors frantically race to uncover the identity and motivation of the cunning culprit.
A cast of stereotypical characters – the butler, the maid, the colonel, the grande-dame, the amateur detective, etc. – and all performed on one set, that proves to be the real star of the show.
When the characters enter the Grand Entrance Hall of Rancour's Retreat, they are singing and dancing their way into an incredible booby trap!
WHODUNIT? Here's a hint – it wasn't the butler!
