Poor Mavis, just a tad flighty and frankly nasty, is stuck in an unhappy marriage with her stodgy upper-crust husband Edgar … what’s a woman to do?
Come along and see for yourself. But beware, you could die laughing as improbable plot twists, scene ending cliffhangers and nonsense abound in this spoof of all crime thrillers.

When this zany spoof of British mysteries opened in Sydney, Australia, reviewers spouted phrases like ‘a great vehicle for three ladies,’ ‘a plethora of hilarious situations,’ and ‘this is a romp!’

‘Really a minor gem … witty and sophisticated.’ – Newcastle Morning Herald

‘Murder has never been this funny. A spoof of all crime thrillers … it is good clean mirth all the way. The quick, smart, extremely well timed dialogue of Jack Sharkey comes through loud and clear [with]never a dull moment.’ – Times

‘There are secret chambers, secret panels and trap lids galore. They’re all operated by the most ridiculous contrivances and gloriously mucked up…. A high, mad melodrama.’ – Frank Harris

‘Delightful … constant humor…. A good mixture of Agatha Christie, Monty Python, and Abbot and Costello!’ – Canon, Memphis
