More photographs from Murder at the Pelican Club performed by Act One Drama

The cast of Murder at the Pelican Club, performed by Act One Drama, KentAct 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 including my new hero Art Marvik, who will appear in Silent Running in March 2015.

Meanwhile I have an idea and rough outline for a new Inspector Doyle Play and hope to do some work on that over Christmas and the New Year

The band at the Pelican Club before the murder takes placeMurder 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. The audience were transported back to November 1940 and the Pelican nightclub and restaurant in Liverpool during the Blitz.

Tillie Trotman is dead- Murder at the Pelican Club performed by Act One Drama, KentThis 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.

It's a traditional whodunnit and a why done it with humour and lots of clues, but you have to watch and listen carefully to follow the twists and turns of the plot and then see if you've guessed right.
