Madame Poisson's Guide to Health, Wealth and Murder A Comedy of Bad Manners by DW Gregory
Short, 20-25 minutes
2 females, 4 males
A suggestion of a late 19th century parlor: a settee, a table, and some chairs.
The allure of the charming and witty Madame Poisson is too strong for any man in the village to resist. It seems a new suitor is always walking through her door, but no one thinks to wonder why many of them never leave. Will Inspector Idiot finally discover her secret, or will he, too, fall victim to her fatal charms?
(This play may also be performed under its original title The Savage Sex.)
