The Case of the Frightened Lady at the Minack Theatre presented by Miracle Theatre
It’s 1932 and Edgar Wallace, the Fleet Street editor widely known for his hugely popular and successful whodunnits, gets a desperate call from his publisher. With only a weekend to produce a new novel, the indefatigable Wallace leaps into action.
The Case of the Frightened Lady is a hilarious account of the antics of the Wallace household as they flit dizzyingly between reality and fiction, inventing storylines, devising dialogue and arguing over the final denouement.
The result is a hugely enjoyable mix of plot, character, farce and irony plus some unforgettable songs.
Written and directed by Bill Scott with music by Jim Carey
Cast: Tom Adams, Jo Bowis, Benjamin Dyson, Rosie Hughes & Dominic Power
Design: Jude & Alan Munden
Filmed at the Minack Theatre in 2014.
