Dial A for Agatha

Read the Play (minus the ending)

by David Toth
A Murder Mystery 4W /10 M
Approximate Playing Time: 1 Hr., 45 Min.

When host Lord Winston Halifax is murdered in his own home, guests and servants alike are put under Inspector Mandrake’s magnifying glass. An unorthodox detective, he uncovers the murderer, but not before revealing a mystery of his own. Dial A for Agatha hangs its fedora in the same mansion as "Clue", "Sleuth" and "Deathtrap". A parody of age-old murder mystery tropes, starting with the groundbreaking works of Dame Agatha Christie, Dial A for Agatha transplants stock characters from a bygone era to the modern world. The pleasure of the play lies in taking stereotypes and watching them break free from the bonds of convention. As Mandrake closes in on the perpetrator, guests and servants alike, all whom were once under suspicion, come to the defense of the murderer. But not Mandrake, whose reputation as a successful detective lies in the balance.
