The Game's a Foot, Try The Fish and The Man with the Twisted Hip

Part of Harrogate Comedy Festival 2017

Weaving Wodehousian witticisms, farce and highly quotable one-liners into a pair of intriguing 1930s whodunits, award-winning writer-performer Tom Taylor’s rakish aristocrat and first-time detective, Charlie Montague, must prevent a murder. The chap dies. 

Not put off in the slightest, Charlie attends the opening of a new art exhibition where he is presented with a double-threat: murder and modern art. He is equally baffled by both.

Packed with nonstop laughs from start to finish and a revolving gallery of high society dames and eccentric waiters – all played by Taylor – this show was a smash hit at the Edinburgh Festival where it collected a host of four- and five-star reviews.

Reviews

'Tom Taylor has produced a show so funny at one point I thought my lungs were going to burst ... a masterpiece in the genre, fans of the Noel Cowards of the world will not want to miss this show'-Broadway Baby

'Armed only with a chaise longue, smoking jacket and tons of charm … this is a gloriously silly and subversive murder mystery that delights its audience'-The Stage

'If you like your Agatha Christie, or particularly your Dorothy L Sayers, you’ll enjoy the substance beneath the humour and the frequent nods to detective fiction tropes. I absolutely loved every moment of it … an astoundingly funny show.'- Fringe Guru
