By: Tom Stoppard
Feuding theater critics, Moon and Birdboot—the first a fusty philanderer and the second a pompous and vindictive second-stringer—are swept into the whodunit they’re reviewing. In this hilarious spoof, an Agatha Christie-like melodrama unfolds in a fast-paced romp to find the real culprit.
In The Real Inspector Hound, Tony and Academy award-winning playwright Tom Stoppard has crafted a witty, surreal, and compelling tale in which identity is as changeable as a moustache, or a pair of boots, and a hack production of a tired whodunnit can be the cover for a masterful revenge plot, trained on the professional members of the audience.
