INSPECTOR DRAKE AND THE BLACK WIDOW
June 7th - 17th, 2017
“When oil tycoon John Johnson is found with a huge sword in his back, it looks like a straightforward case of dying illegally. But things in Drake’s world are never as they seem. Why was Johnson badly disguised as his own wife? Why had he eaten a tortoise? And why do all the women in the house look so similar?
For once, Inspector Drake’s sidekick, Sgt Plod, thinks he knows all the answers. And so he should – he’s narrating the play through a series of flashbacks! So he knows how it ends, too. If Plod’s predictions are correct, then the Inspector is about to make a terrible mistake. And if Plod’s recurring nightmare involving spiders and a man lying dead are anything to go by, that ending could be really horrible. And we mean really, really horrible… for the dead man is Inspector Drake himself!
Is this just another confusing flashback or the horrible truth of Drake’s final destiny? After all, when the Black Widow lays her deadly trap, it’s just a matter of time…”
