image for Murder at the Tesco Express Opens

London UK: Abigail Crispy's new play "Murder at the Tesco Express" opened at a small theater in the west end last evening to mixed reviews.

This new murder mystery begins with the brutal murder of Nanny McFee, while she was standing on the quick queue line (12 items or less) at a Tesco Express Supermarket. She had been bludgeoned to death with 12 cans of tuna fish. At first glance it appeared to be a random event of market rage, as the nanny had 15 items in her cart.

New Scotland Yard Chief Inspector Ross Poirot (Belgium ancestry) arrives on the premises and suspects that this murder so foul might not be a random event. There may actually be 12 people in the supermarket with reason to murder Nanny McFee. The inspector is about to lock down the crime scene when a sudden London snow storm traps everyone inside the market, conveying a deep sense of déjà vu!

Ms. Crispy's previous credits include a one-act play entitled "Boewolfe" based upon an Old English epic poem, set in Scandinavia, commonly cited as one of the most important works of Anglo-Saxon literature. She is currently deciding whether to write or not to write "Omelet" a play about a Danish chicken.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
