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.
