Agatha Christie Made Me Do It
Agatha Christie Made Me Do It
By Eddie Cope.

Cast: 6m., 5w. This funny three-act spoof of the mystery play set box-office records in its nine-performance premiere as the annual melodrama at the Theatre Suburbia in Houston¸ Texas¸ followed by numerous performances on the dinner theatre circuit. Police Officer Hootspah decided that writing about crime is better than his real-life job of dealing with it on the street. He takes Agatha Christie’s murder mysteries as his model and starts out. In spite of Hootspah’s constant bumbling and ineptness¸ the characters he creates take over¸ and the story that emerges is funny. For example¸ the main character is a playboy type who wakes up from two days of “sleeping it off” to discover that he has two brides and a fiancée. It’s funny and suspenseful—we are not only kept guessing who committed the murder but also kept wondering why the corpse keeps disappearing ... and where! A lively addition to any season—for all groups. Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes.
