Detective Dennis O'Finn, investigating the death of an elderly lady, discovers that he is the motive for murder.

Witty writing and plenty of room for actors to develop their own characters.  Very funny and fast-paced.

This play delivers lots of laughs. It is fast paced and offers good character parts. Our audience were in stitches. It is one of the best one-act plays that we have performed in 35 years.
