Murdered to Death Auditions TITLE.png

A spoof murder mystery by

Peter Gordon

Directed by Jasmine Rixon

By special arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd and New Zealand Play Bureau Ltd.

Synopsis

Bunting the butler, an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip, a shady French art dealer and his moll, bumbling local inspectors and a well meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder - they're all here, and all caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the owner of a country manor house. But will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will audiences die laughing first?
