The legendary Inspector Drake is back to tackle a mystery that's as mad as a box of frogs, and a whole heap of fun to produce. There's no set to build, so it's perfect for festivals or an evening of one-act plays. All you need is just a little sprinkling of imagination and a collection of oddball props. There's even a non-speaking role for a props lady who's just bound to steal the show (and no lines to learn!)
This is the first time that Drake has appeared in a one-act format, so it's the ideal time to dip your toes into his surreal world and treat your audiences to something very different.
The plot, incidentally, is based (very loosely) on the screenplay of the original Inspector Drake movie.

A game of cricket deep in the Cotswolds. Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter are padded up and waiting to go in? What could possibly go wrong?
Stumped is a shadowy caprice that turns the tables on two giants of twentieth century drama and subjects them to an unwelcome blend of their own worlds created by an unseen figure.
"A perfect pitch for lovers of drama and cricket." - The Guardian

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears' dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight, and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain and is exceptional at maths, but he is ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But Christopher's detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that turns his world upside-down.

Ace in twenty-two, trans, queer and sofa surfing - currently - just for now - only at the moment. They've actually just sorted out sofa number thirteen. To keep a sofa requires you to act small, smiling, and polite. But no one is perfect and eventually everyone messes up - which would be a lot easier for Ace if they weren't also unexpectedly growing extra ears, and a tiny tail! It turns out people pleasing has a price and there's only one place left for Ace to go?
"An uplifting, cleverly written and extremely funny tale of learning to take up space again, when you?ve spent all your life trying to go as unnoticed as possible." - Everything Theatre
