As part of its special 35th anniversary program Miracle revisits one of its most popular productions to date, complete with original cast.
Its 1932 and Edgar Wallace, the Fleet Street editor widely known for his hugely popular and successful whodunits, 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 pure Miracle, a hugely enjoyable mix of plot, character, farce and irony plus some unforgettable songs. A highly inventive piece of theatre suitable for a family audience of all ages.
Bill Scott’s melodramatic, helter-skelter, DIY whodunit is a dizzying tangle of red herrings and black humour.
There is a great sense of fun, pace and a wonderful connection with the audience.
Lampooning everything from the cod-thriller to amateur dramatics, The Case of the Frightened Lady is not only hilarious, but is a gripping piece of drama which deserves to be the hit of this summer.
