Inspector Drake & The Time Machine - by David Tristram
Performed - Wed 12th to Sat 15th November 2008

Professor Wilberforce's dead body is found floating in the study, his daughter has vanished, and everything points to the mysterious Time Machine. Can the intrepid Inspector Drake, ably hampered by Sergeant Plod, solve the crime of the century?
By a freak of science, our heroes are hurtled into the year 2950, and onto the deck of an alien spaceship. Plod becomes momentarily super-intelligent, and tries to make love to a robot, while Drake uncovers a fiendish plot to take over the world, and falls into the groping hands of the sex-starved High Priestess of Zircon.

Fasten your seat belts for a comedy that's way ahead of its time.
