Agatha Crusty And The 'Mighty Midget' Murders

    by Derek Webb



Comedy Play Script: 'Agatha Crusty And The Mighty Mudget Murders' by Derek WebbGeoffrey and Caroline Robertson are having a dinner party to celebrate ten successful years of 'Mighty Midget Vacuum Cleaners', the company he jointly owns with Tim McArthur, and to add spice to the evening they decide to make it a murder mystery dinner. They are joined by a variety of employees and their partners.

Geoffrey also has a special surprise – he has invited the well-known crime novelist, Agatha Crusty (pronounced 'Croosty') to join them. She is in the area promoting her latest book and agrees to be guest of honour.

But on the evening of the dinner, their remote Victorian house finds itself in the centre of a storm so bad that the river floods and they are cut off. Worse, the power fails and in the darkness one of the guests is murdered. But since everybody else was together when the murder was committed, they are as perplexed as they are worried.

When another murder happens in the same way, it is no laughing matter… except this is an Agatha Crusty murder mystery so there are laughs a-plenty, as well as a genuine mystery that will keep an audience guessing, as well as laughing.

This play is the second in a series of Agatha Crusty titles. See also:
