Murder at Rundown Abbey

by Craig Sodaro
A comedy/murder mystery and spoof of Agatha Christie and "Downton Abbey"

Produced by permission of Pioneer Drama Service, Inc.
Director: CherylAnn Welch
Co-Producers: CherylAnn Welch & Marcus Hatch


Sam Splayed, an American private eye in London, desperately needs a case he can sink his teeth into. Lucky for him, he quickly finds himself undercover as the new butler at the rambling ancestral home of the Crumbledown family.

Alas, the Crumbledowns have been plagued by bad luck. Two of the three Crumbledown siblings have died, leaving only Percival, who was recently kicked in the head by a horse. He now suffers from intermittent amnesia. His wife, Pamela, keeps a stiff upper lip while his stepdaughters play a tug-of-war between tradition and the new "Roaring Twenties."

Ruling over all is Lady Sybil Snodley-Snippett, a diva if there ever was one. Sam gets off to a rocky start as a servant, but soon his assistant Kitty bursts on the scene as a psychic who has been told by the dead butler that he was murdered by a poisoned dart. "Impossible!" roars Sybil. But when the secretary of Percival's lawyer meets the same end, the family's stiff upper lips begin to quiver.
