Inspector Drake & The Perfekt Crime (by David Tristram)

Murder, mayhem and comedy! A great recipe for a great night out! Nambour Lind Lane's latest offering, "The Perfekt Crime", melds all three of these together for a great evening's entertainment. This play by David Tristram is an hilarious who-dunnit that ends up with the audience laughing too much to really care about the whos, whats or whys of the who-dunnit.

It's a traditional farce with a twist of Monty Python and a sprinkle of the Goons. This play is one in a series of comedy farces by David Tristram that explores the exploits of his central character -- Inspector Drake. Drake is a cross between Basil Fawlty and Inspector Clouseau and whenever his antics hit the stage then madness and laughter ensue.

The plot of "The Perfekt Crime" has more twists and turns than an election promise. Inspector Drake is called to the country house of Dr Rupert Short -- the medical and scientific genius -- to investigate the disappearance of his wife. Or is it just a simple case of a disappearing wife? Aided by his faithful sidekick, Sgt Plod (bumbling and inept are too kind a description), Drake soon realises that this case will tax his powers of deduction to almost breaking point. Add to the mix a liturgy of ex wives, the return of a wayward daughter from Canada, a Warthog on the wall (stuffed and mounted naturally), more seductions than deductions and more Red Herrings then even John West could reject. This play is going to be an hysterical fun filled night.

David Tristram's "The Perfekt Crime" -- Nambour Lind Lane's latest play -- is shaping up to be the perfect vehicle for their end of year production.

All reports so far are that this hysterical farce firing on all four cylinders and will be a veritable laugh a minute. This fast paced farce will be just what the doctor ordered for the end of a strange and demanding year for most people.

The audience will be guaranteed that for two hours they will forget they have a mortgage, forget the price of petrol, forget all their cares and woes and just sit back and have a really good laugh.

"A rollicking comedy wrapped up with murder, mayhem and mystery" is how director Simon Denver describes the show. The top flight cast includes Brett Klease, Rachel Fentiman, Adam Greenwood and Shane Cassidy.
