Thrills and jokes in Christie spoof

Inspector Pratt is back at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal in another run of Peter Gordon’s comedy Death By Fatal Murder.

The third in Gordon’s Inspector Pratt trilogy proved a big hit when it was seen last summer during the Classic Thriller Season there.

In the play, the hapless inspector returns to Bagshot House, scene of previous investigations. During the course of the case, Pratt is assisted by Miss Maple and Constable Thomkins and soon becomes involved in further mystery as danger looms following the arrival of an unexpected guest.

A hilarious spoof in the Agatha Christie style, Death By Fatal Murder is sure to delight all lovers of murder mystery.

It can be seen at the Theatre Royal from June 11-16. Tickets to see it are available from the box office on 0115 9895555.
