The Case of the Dead Flamingo Dancer


Dan Butler & Donald Oliver

Published by Samuel French Inc

4 Male 4 Female

The summer of '42. A stormy night. In the drawing room, a corpse and six guests. Nick Lambent, the tap dancing detective, arrives

Who dunnit? Nobody leaves the room until the case is cracked. Will Nick's incredible, crime solving feet flush out the lies, leaky alibis and hidden identities or will our hero try to solve this one with his head like a regular flatfoot?

Twists, turns, surprises, a little love and a lot of lunacy fill every scene

"The funniest of detective spoofs" ~ The Stage

"Outrageously funny.... The audience loved every foot tapping minute" ~ Esher News and Mail

"Blithe entertainment" ~ Variety

"Melodious music and articulate lyrics.... It has "hit' written all over it" ~ Southampton Press

"People who love dance, or old movies, or old musicals, or a good time won't want to miss it" ~ N.Y. Newsday
