The Scousetrap a Royal Court Liverpool production kicks off its run with press night tonight. On until 29th October.
Liverpool, 1940. The Germans have turned their focus on the biggest port in country and surely it is only a matter of time before their bombs land on the Royal Navy’s Command Centre and their fleet. The only thing that has kept Liverpool safe until now is that Adolf Hitler used to live in the city and is still scared of his old landlady. And they haven’t found the Command Centre…yet!
Lord Street, philandering eccentric First Lord of the Admiralty, needs to maintain the war effort by rooting out any German spies, but he can’t do it on his own. The question is – who can help? The answer is to call in the city’s greatest private detective, Miss Inga Marble.
Marble’s reputation as a maverick gumshoe is unequalled in polite society. Or impolite society to be honest. But how will her unorthodox approach fare in this most complex of mysteries? Will she unmask the murderer before the interval or are the rest of the cast toast?
