Bridgewater Players Present...Agatha Crusty v2

In Association with Stagescripts Limited



Agatha Crusty


and the


Health Spa




A Comedy

by Derek Webb


Crime novelist and amateur detective Agatha Crusty (pronounced 'croosty') decides that a spell at a health spa is just what she needs to recharge her batteries and give her inspiration for her latest book.  She books into Seventh Heaven Health Spa owned by Andy Eden who started it after the early death of his wife Evie.  There she meets the other participants of the health spa weekend: members of the Zara Fernandez sales team who are there as a reward for being the highest achievers in terms of sales for the year.  She also meets two members of the Seventh Heaven team: Abigail the therapist and Dmitri Popov, a Russian therapist specialising in Venik massage.

Things start well with the women experiencing the choice of spa treatments on offer (Dmitri's Venik massage using birch twigs being especially popular) until one of the group is found drowned, presumed murdered, in the Moor Mud Bath.

Enter Detective Inspector Simon Aster – a DI with a speech impediment and a penchant for complicating the simplest detection methods.  When other murders follow, Agatha decides to take matters into her own hands, investigating among other things the significance of the apple tree in the health spa's 'Garden of Eden'.

There is of course a very healthy dose of humour throughout, but, being an Agatha Crusty murder mystery, this is also a genuine mystery with an ingenious plot to tax the little grey cells of the audience at the same time as making them laugh out loud.
