The Real Inspector Hound

by Tom Stoppard

Poster of The Real Inspector Hound

Getting away with murder must be quite easy provided that ones motives are sufficiently inscrutable.Join Birdboot and Moon, a pair of upstanding theatre critics, for a fine night of murder and mayhem among Lady Cynthia’s guests at Muldoon Manor. It’s all just another country house whodunnit to be viewed and reviewed, until the perilous events of the preposterous onstage parlor mystery spill over to reveal the dark secrets Birdboot and Moon are themselves harboring.This one-act play satirizes the whole murder-mystery genre while also lambasting the posturing theatre critics get up to from their safe perches in the audience. The end result is a deliciously dark metatheatrical confection served up with Tom Stoppard’s signature wit.
