The London Times calls this existential farce, “one of the funniest and most brilliant short plays in the language. It is a hilarious spoof of Agatha Christie like melodramas. Feuding theatre critics Moon and Birdboot, one a philandering fussbudget, the other the pompous and vindictive secondary critic to the more popular and talented Higgs are at the theatre to review a new murder mystery in this play-within-a play. As mists rise about isolated Muldoon Manor, Moon and Birdboot become dangerously implicated in the lethal activities of an escaped madman.
