The Escapade of the Burmese Burglary

This brand new musical is an utterly absurd and wonderfully comic detective romp starring everyone's favourite super-sleuth, Ebenezer Erskine-Crummet, a very large diamond, an unpleasant murder and an exotic female with a fetish for health and safety.

Scotland Yard's finest mind, Ebenezer Erskine-Crummet, along with his put-upon assistant Rosaline Westmacott, have been dispatched to investigate a murder. The deceased is the Head of Security at the British-Burmese Bank in London and Ebenezer suspects that the newly imported Star of Bhutan, concealed within the Bank's vaults, may be at risk. Will this be a case too far for the force's greatest detective? And, more importantly, will Rosaline ever reveal her true feelings?

The Escapade of the Burmese Burglary was joint winner of FFShorts, the international festival of new writing which sets out to find a new play for the Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre. As well as two weeks at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe the play will be published by Stagescripts Ltd.
