The Real Inspector HoundSynopsis

Two theatre critics, Moon and Birdboot, are watching and commenting upon a corny country-house mystery, the cliché-sodden whodunnit. Yet at an early stage the theatrical levels begin to blur, as Moon claims to have seen Birdboot out on the town with Felicity, one of the fictional females. Midway through–when nobody else is onstage–Birdboot ventures to answer the persistently ringing stage-phone only to find it is his real wife who is speaking (possibly suspecting his fictive flirtations). Once “onstage,” he gets caught up in an embarrassing barney with Felicity and hilarity ensues.
