Torment of one man accused of murder

A DARKLY comic one-man play will be revisited next week.

Comedy duo Doggett and Ephgrave join forces with BBC Radio 4’s Ben Tinniswood for a production of Vincent Cassar’s What’s the Time, Mr Wolf?

The play centres on Conrad Kordover – a man with strange habits who lives on his own in a small bedsit.

He is a Pagan and an eccentric, whose unconventional behaviour has drawn attention from both his community and the local authorities.

When a brutal murder is committed in the area, it isn’t long before the police come knocking. But with little substantial evidence to go by, is this simply a case of needing to find a scapegoat?

The play was originally performed in 2001 in Bristol after winning Theatre West’s Search for a Script competition that same year.

Following a successful stint at last year’s Brighton Fringe, Doggett and Ephgrave have taken on the production with shows in Hitchin, Camden, Bristol and Frome.
