Written by British actor and playwright Charles Dyer, Wanted – one
body! has been staged constantly since its first production in 1961.
The time is 1921; the place is the dismal gothic abode of the recently
departed Charles Barraclough; and the characters are assembled in the
thick of a storm for the funeral and the reading of the will of the
deceased. Gathered there are his stepdaughter Miss Faith Barraclough,
Mabel the maid, Agnes the cook, Anne Beale the secretary, Ted Johnson
the chauffeur and two hapless solicitors Mr. Blundell and Mr.
Mickleby. When the will is read, we learn that the bulk of his fortune
has been split between the servants! As communication with the outside
world is cut off, deaths occur, bodies disappear and for those left in
the Manor, returning to town becomes impossible. The intriguingly
convoluted plot is full of comedic moments, a brilliant choice for our
End of Year Production.
