PUPILS from Stamford Endowed Schools are proud to present an evening of Tom Stoppard plays, including The Real Inspector Hound, Dogg’s Hamlet and Cahoot’s Macbeth. The plays will be performed at the Corn Exchange Theatre in Broad Street, Stamford on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Anneke Davies, head of drama at the schools, said: “Combining Tom Stoppard’s one act farcical murder mystery The Real Inspector Hound with his two shorter plays, Dogg’s Hamle and ‘Cahoot’s Macbeth, our company of players multi-role across the three plays in order to present you with a spectacular evening of farce, intrigue and classic Shakespearean tragedy.”

The Real Inspector Hound, by award-winning writer Tom Stoppard is a one-act farce lampooning everything Agatha Christie holds dear. Hound parodies the conventions of the clichéd drawing room murder mystery and the self-importance of egotistical theatre critics.

Dogg’s Hamlet and Cahoot’s Macbeth are two one-act plays by Tom Stoppard, which are often performed together as Dogg’s Hamlet, Cahoot’s Macbeth.
