Evelyn Farrant - actor - is exceedingly poor. Rupert Farrant - his twin - is excessively rich. There seems to be only one solution. Evelyn must kill Rupert and inherit his wealth.


The time: the eve of Edward VIII’s abdication speech.
The reluctant accomplice: Major Ambrose Powell
The essential grumpy landlady: Mrs McGee.
The likely prospect? Macabre comedy mayhem....

Don't miss out on a major revival of this brilliant comedy thriller which has had successful runs in the West End, Broadway and has played across the globe. It rightfully takes its place in the pantheon of sharp and witty whodunnits alongside Sleuth and Deathtrap. From the producer of Park90 hit, Black Chiffon.

Age Recommendation: 14+

Critic reviews

Some nifty staging and a strong performance from Tom York as two warring brothers cannot enliven this outdated caper

The Guardian

A well done revival that dark comedy fans will love

Everything Theatre

If you’re just looking for a fun night out, some truly skilled design, several magical moments, and some skilled comedy in the second half, then this farce fits the bill

London Box Office

The show could be pacier if the first half was edited a bit. But with a murderer this charming, it just about gets away with taking its time


Animated production of an entertaining if slow-paced comedy about a histrionic murder plot
