Tiptoe Through the Tombstones

PLAYWRIGHT Norman Robbins
DESCRIPTION
Some months have passed since the ghastly events in Monument House, well known to those fmiliar with A Tomb with a View. Now Mortimer Crayle, the crusty old lawyer, and his secretary Zoe, have gathered the last remaining Tomb family members (as offbeat a bunch as the original occupants) at the old house, ostensibly to inform them about their inheritance. But Crayle has designs on the inheritance which demand the death of all Tombs. Fog descends on the gloomy mansion and in the cobwebby corridors things - and people - are seldom what they seem. With poison in every decanter and mysterious disappearances into secret passageways, host and guests alike join the increasing number of bodies in the cellar. A glorious spoof - a worthy sequel to A Tomb with a View - although previous acquaintance with the Tombs is not required
