Inspector Drake's Last Case

Inspector Drake's Last Case is a Murder Mystery spoof comedy by David Tristram.
No-one could have foreseen the strange events that took place one dark evening at the home of Mrs Gagarin. We see her taking a stroll. Next she screams, "Who is it? Oh, it's you!" Next a gunshot! It's up to the world's greatest detective to solve the crime. But, in the words of Sergeant Plod, "don't believe everything you see ..." After all, is it safe to say that Mrs Gagarin is actually dead?

I played the part of Butler the guest, as opposed to Guest, the butler. 


The show was performed by the Little Theatre, Donnington, Shropshire
