Baroque Theatre Company Presents:
By Alma Cullen
Inspired by the Inspector Morse novels of Colin Dexter
Directed by Adam Morley. Produced by Claire Bibby. Sponsored by Clarian Ltd.

Colin Dexter’s eponymous sleuth made famous by the late, great John Thaw returns to the stage in this original play written by Alma Cullen, author of several episodes of the original TV series. Inspired by both the TV series and the original Colin Dexter novels, this intriguing incarnation of the unassuming, stoically-reserved, often grumpy Inspector takes its cue firmly from theatrical history. Opening with a performance from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, a young professional actress playing Ophelia dies suddenly mid-performance. Inspector Morse is immediately on the scene, having been in the audience. The stage is cordoned off and becomes a fully fledged murder scene. The plot delves deep into Morse's past as a student in Oxford, uniting him with 'ghosts' from his past. Giving us an insight into some of the events which shaped Morse's life in years to come. A real treat for the Morse fan.

Visually stunning with clever use of stage to create a myriad of locations and a larger number of characters, this thrilling and intelligent mystery leaves the audience constantly guessing in this “stage-within-a-stage” whodunit.
