A New British Musical
Book and Lyrics by
Music by Chris Whitehead
November 1935. Honey Quenelle, England’s biggest movie star, is hosting a lavish party to celebrate her birthday, at her remote home on Lost Crow Island. The champagne is chilling, the glamorous guests are ready for an unforgettable night and reliable butler, Hugo is on hand to make sure the evening goes without a hitch.
But when catering fails to arrive, news filters through of an escaped inmate at Beningford asylum and Gaylord, the gerbil, escapes from the soup tureen, events take a nasty turn. Who is about to meet their maker? Who cannot escape from their past? And who will be brave enough to sample Mabel’s devilled prunes before the night is through…?
