A comedy by Charles Dyer, Presented by Helen's Bay Players
Wanted, One, Body
In the best Hammer horror tradition, the action takes place in a classic old dark house set amidst the rising flood waters and swirling mists on the edge of the lonely mashes. This is Greenacres, the home of the Barraclough family, to which come a pair of solicitors to read the will of the late, but not greatly lamented Mr Barraclough, only to learn that his body has mysteriously vanished along with the will! Wanted: One Body! is a classic murder mystery of disappearing bodies and howls in the night. A who-dunnit and a thriller, but with the accent on laughter, its evergreen popularity testifies to its warmth, with and thrills, and the hilarious fun for audience and actors alike.
