Written By: Paul Freed
Directed By: Ian Rigney
Set at the Meadowbrook Health Resort, a converted mansion in the main office, formerly the drawing room, the play opens with a prologue where we see the owner being mysteriously murdered. This is a madcap murder mystery.
The new owner, LADY RIVERDALE, also owner of "Lady Riverdale Chocolates" - a lady with a questionable past who has hired a very strange array of characters around her. Why?
There's the new manager of the resort, JOHN STONE, who has no experience whatsoever. Um! He is quick-witted and finds everything absurd.
DYSLEXIA (does that tell you something?): Lady Riverdale's long-suffering secretary.
EDITH CHILES: The well-published chef in charge of the kitchen RALPH DEADWOOD: The gym manager and all-round cad. He knew Lady R in the past.
DICK SIMMERING: The Aarobics instructor - a "Richard Simmons" on heat.
ALFRED MELLOX: A very stiff, rigid and typical butler-type with a clipped British accent. He is in charge of the janitorial staff at the resort.
"SWEET PEA" MEADOWBROOK: Daughter of the late Henry Meadowbrook. Extremely overweight, she seems to be trying to eat herself to death. Her mouth is always full. No-one can understand her except Alfred.
ED PARLOR: Guest of Lady R, he is a writer with a cheery disposition and enjoys the opportunity to try and solve the mysterious deaths.
MARGARET DANIELS: An attractive woman who is trying to write a feature story on the resort for a leading gossip magazine.
ANNE: The resort nurse who tends to panic at the slightest injury.
TBA: Sundays (probably mornings), Monday evenings and either Wednesday or Thursday evenings.

(Please be aware that all street directories and most satnav software have the many one-way roads in the area marked in the wrong direction).
From Grange Road: Travelling west on Grange Road from the city, turn right into William Street, just before the Crittenden Road intersection). Travel along William until it becomes a one-way street (in the opposite direction) – there’s a ‘no-entry’ sign. Turn left into Toogood Road and then immediately right into Charles Street which becomes a one-way road in the direction in which you’re travelling. At the first stop sign, turn left into Alfred Avenue. This has two dog-leg corners (first left, then right). After the second dog-leg, Regina Court is the first (and only) turn on your left.
From Port Road: Travelling north-west on Port Road, turn left into East Avenue and right into Fairbanks Street (which becomes Gemmell Street). Turn left into William Street and immediately right into Alfred Avenue. This has two dog-leg corners (first left, then right).

Travelling north-west on Port Road, travel over the East Avenue intersection. The second on the left after East Avenue is William Street. Turn left into William and, about 500 metres along, turn right into Alfred Avenue. Stay on Alfred. This has two dog-leg corners (first left, then right). After the second dog-leg, Regina Court is the first (and only) turn on your left.
