The Potman Spoke Sooth
The Potman Spoke Sooth
By David Fulk.

Cast: 6m., 2w. (1 voice.) Agatha Christie is spoofed hilariously as a respectable murder mystery turns into a farcical game of illusion and reality. Colonel Winthrop Wiggins and his wife Beatrice live in their typically English country home. During a blizzard which cuts them off, they receive a visit from Detective Sergeant Gallagher. He informs them that a notorious "Peanut Murderer" is on the loose. Laughs abound as Gallagher, the Wigginses and the butler Miles engage in a zany intrigue of murders, accusations and arrests. Finally the ending string of twists and reversals becomes too much for the actors to bear and they take a Pirandello step out of the play to straighten things out. One int. set. Approximate Running Time: 40 minutes.
