An Hercule Poudrot mystery

 by Pat Whymark

While on a Christmas visit to his cousin, Sister Immaculata Biggles, in the secluded convent of St Muttley’s, renowned detective Hercule Poudrot meets Bishop Humbedee, who has arrived to celebrate mass. Next day, The bishop is no-where to be found, and with no-one to lead their carol service, the desperate sisters of St Muttley engage the services of Poudrot and his intrepid sidekick Hustings to find the missing cleric.

What dark secrets will they uncover in the neighboring village of Ditcham? What is the macabre history shared by it’s inhabitants? What other goings on – are going on?

Another classic festive comedy thriller, brought to you by Suffolk-based Common Ground Theatre Company, the team behind many genre spoof Xmas shows, most recently last year’s Sherlock Holmes Meets Count Dracula!
