About the Play:

The Potman Spoke Sooth is a one-act a murder mystery comedy by David Fulk. Who is the Peanut Murderer? Agatha Christie is spoofed hilariously as a respectable murder mystery turns into a farcical game of illusion and reality.

The Potman Spoke Sooth is a spoof of murder mysteries, specifically Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap. Colonel Winthrop Wiggins and his wife Beatrice live in their typically English country home. During a blizzard which cuts them off, they receive a visit from Detective Sergeant Gallagher. He informs them that the "Peanut Murderer" – a notorious serial killer – is on the loose nearby. Laughs abound as Gallagher, the Wigginses and the butler Miles engage in a zany intrigue of murders, accusations and arrests. Finally the ending string of twists and reversals becomes too much for the actors to bear and they take a Pirandello step out of the play to straighten things out.

The Potman Spoke Sooth premiered at The University of Texas at Austin and has been performed in hundreds of venues around the world.

Cast: 2 female, 6 male (1 voice)
