(5m, 5f) The action unfolds in the Drawing Room of wealthy factory owner Titus Platt’s rather stately home somewhere in 1930’s England. Titus is murdered and Inspector Bullock of the Yard is sent for. When he starts to investigate, there are many suspects: the son, Malcolm; his sister Penny; her fiancé Thomas; the maid, Livia; the house keeper, Miss Grimlish, and the mysterious new chauffeur, Dick Drake. When a man staggers in, bound and gagged, and says that he too is Inspector Bullock, there’s quite some explaining to do!
(Minimum Cast Size: 3m, 2f) ‘The War of the Roses’ is probably best remembered for being made into an iconic 1989 film starring Kathleen Turner, Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito.

Are today’s marriages haunted by the struggle to get even?
