Act One Drama perform 1940s Play, Murder at the Pelican Club, by Pauline Rowson

Inspector Doyle- Act One Murder performing Murder at the Pelican Club Act One Drama in Kent did a great job in putting on my play, Murder at the Pelican Club, to packed audiences over three days on 30/31 October and November 1st and I was delighted to join them for the last night on Saturday.  The play is written in the vein of Agatha Christie's Poirot but with a dash of humour and music.

Murder at the Pelican Club is a departure for me as  writing crime novels are more my thing but I loved writing it and creating grumpy, middle-aged, gruff Inspector Doyle, the complete opposite to the rugged and flawed DI Andy Horton, and the action characters in my other crime novels.

Murder at the Pelican Club is set in war torn Britain in 1940s Liverpool during the Blitz.  Inspector Doyle appears to be ponderous but underneath he has a wry sense of humour and is very sharp. I also enjoyed writing in that period and have several more ideas for Doyle in the 1940s.

The village hall became the nightclub and some of the audience even dressed up in 1940s clothes.

This is singer Tillie Trotman's last performance before leaving to entertain the troops overseas someone though is intent on stopping her. The murder takes place while the bombs are raining down.
