Godalming Theatre Group’s Production of The Real Inspector Hound
Godalming Theatre Group presents its production of Tom Stoppard’s The Real Inspector Hound from 2-5 November 2022 at Prior’s Field Theatre, Godalming.
Stoppard’s play about the theatrical process has been described ‘a classic of the English comic tradition’.
Two pretentious critics, Moon and Birdboot, settle down to review a classic murder mystery set in Lady Muldoon’s remote, rural residence.
But, as our two critics are drawn inexorably into the world of a country house, whodunnit confusion sets in… we, the audience, are watching the critics as the critics watch each other watching the play, a wife is keeping an eye on a husband, the husband is having an affair with an ingenue, the ingenue is eyeing a handsome man, the handsome man is feasting his eyes elsewhere, the leading lady wants the critic but also wants her husband. Who is the madman? Who keeps calling on that phone? Who is the corpse? Who killed the corpse? And the inspector? Well, where is the inspector? Indeed, who is the inspector? And the elderly char…well, she makes the char… um, tea… can any of this be real? And if so… what?
Got it? Good! See you there!
Godalming Theatre Group is delighted to welcome National Theatre veteran Matthew Lloyd Davies directing a talented cast of GTG actors through the confusion to a murderously funny conclusion.
