Where There's a Will...
- full length "black" farce - 3m 5f or 4m 4f (two slightly different scripts - please specify your choice), single set (scripts 6.00 each, performances 40 each)

The play opens amid a lengthy blazing row between Linda and husband Derek. Linda accuses him (quite rightly) of being unfaithful, but during the row it transpires that the other woman is Linda's younger sister. Derek is unaware that Linda is also having an affair - with Derek's younger brother! Each avows revenge, and as the result of a series of bungled murder attempts the bodies fall thick and fast. The vicar is the first to go, if only they can get rid of that annoying body - and his bike! Despite their attempts to dispose of one another, Linda and Derek survive to the close, where, perhaps inevitably, they manage to murder each other. Two versions are available, to suit casts.
