“We interrupt our programme for a special message:

The police are still searching in vain for the madman who is at large in the deadly marshes of the coastal region. Inspector Hound who is masterminding the operation is not available for comment but it is widely believed that he has a secret plan… Meanwhile police and volunteers are combing the swamps, shouting, ‘Don’t be a madman, give yourself up.

A delightful comedy that twists, turns and somersaults its way through all the conventions of a murder mystery. Tom Stoppard’s The Real Inspector Hound is guaranteed to keep you entertained… and guessing.
