COMMON GROUND THEATRE COMPANY
MISS MIMPLE MEETS THE ICE WOLF
by Pat Whymark
Renowned amateur sleuth and part-time dog trainer Miss Jean Mimple is on a hiking tour of the Italian alps, sightseeing and collecting the odd alpine to take back to her garden in St Mary Mirkin. In a remote hostelry, she meets Dr Bridges, assistant to the mysterious Professor Ramekin, who lives in nearby Castle Pandoro.
The body of one of the servants at the Castle has been found torn to shreds, and Dr Bridges invites Miss Mimple to help with the investigation. The locals at the inn warn her of The Ice Wolf, or “Bestia Gelato” – half man, half wolf, half frozen dessert – which has terrorised the region for several months? Undeterred, the plucky Miss Mimple sets off to investigate.
Could the terrifying Ice Wolf be linked to Professor Ramekin’s experiments? (Spoiler: Of course it is!) Will Miss Mimple ever return to sleepy St Mary Mirkin, and will the odd alpine be happy there or will he miss his Italian roots.
A festive comedy with songs lasting 2 hours including an interval.
Doors open at 7:00 pm
