Natural Causes

von Eric Chappell

Diese brillante, schwarze Komödie zeigt, dass sogar geplanter Selbstmord kompliziert werden kann. Vincent, ein professioneller Suizidbegleiter, wird von Walter Bryce beauftragt und kommt zu dessen Landsitz. Irrtümlicherweise denkt Vincent, dass das Gift für Walter selbst bestimmt ist – oder vielleicht doch für Walters Gattin Celia? Falls ja, warum hat sie keinen einzigen ihrer Abschiedsbriefe unterschrieben? Nach einigen vergeblichen Versuchen, verschiedene Menschen zu vergiften, stellt sich die Frage: Wird es Vincent gelingen, seinen Auftrag auszuführen und überhaupt jemanden umzubringen?

Natural Causes

by Eric Chappell

A brilliant black comedy ensues when Vincent, a professional suicide merchant, is contracted by Walter Bryce and arrives at his country house. He mistakenly assumes that the potion is intended for Walter - or maybe for Walter's wife Celia? If so, then why are all her suicide notes left unsigned? After several failed attempts at poisoning various characters, will Vincent succeed in killing anyone?

 

Jean is preparing a birthday dinner for her mild-mannered accountant husband Henry.  Good friends Betty and Vic are expected any minute, and Jean is frantic because Henry is late.  When he eventually arrives, Jean finds him not quite the man he used to be.  He wants to emigrate to Barcelona immediately, and with good reason: the briefcase he accidentally picked up on the Underground is stuffed with bundles of fifty pound notes amounting to £735,000!  But if getting the money was easy, keeping it proves harder, as not one but two police inspectors call and Henry, Vic, Betty and a bemused (and tipsy) Jean are forced into a frantic game of cat and mouse.  Hilarious innuendo and cruelly funny turns of fate ensue as the two couples assume all sorts of identities in their battle to keep the money.  Will they succeed?  The cabby Bill has the answer!
