The Porlock Poisoner
Five global do-gooders descend upon the tranquil village of Porlock Weir in Somerset to compete for a £25m grant. By Marcy Kahan.
Miriam Margolyes, Fenella Woolgar and Kevin Eldon star in The Porlock Poisoner by the award-winning playwright Marcy Kahan.
A comedy whodunit in which five global do-gooders - a genetic engineer, a feminist activist, an environmental analyst, an economics guru and a world poverty campaigner - descend upon the tranquil harbour village of Porlock Weir in Somerset to compete for a £25m grant.
But during a visit to the smallest parish church in England, one of the group suffers a gruesome fate - and a weekend dedicated to world affairs turns into a murder mystery.
Fortunately there is a gifted amateur detective present - Tina Paganini, a statuesque blonde with a photographic memory, a misleadingly air-headed manner and the wrong shoes for an English country walk.
