Friday 28th April - Shoddy Theatre presents: A Shoddy Detective And The Art Of Deception

New-kid-on-the-block theatre company, Shoddy Theatre, are taking the country by storm! Their current Spring Tour is selling out in venues across the country, why? Because they're offering everyone a good night out, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Following its hit run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Shoddy Theatre is taking slapstick comedy A Shoddy Detective And The Art Of Deception to the Poly in Falmouth.

A bumbling detective is called upon to uncover the mystery of a priceless stolen painting, but when he cannot solve it himself he is forced to enlist the help of an old nemesis. Together, the pair must interrogate the many characterful suspects that reside at the manor, in order to catch the conniving culprit and solve the crime of the century.
