Take Seven Cooks
by Malcolm Noble

Take Seven Cooks is a whodunit adapted for the amateur stage from the author’s series of Timberdick Mysteries

Four lines from a traditional nursery rhyme guide seven suspects through this entertaining whodunit. Jealousy, resentment and ambition emerge as likely motives, but it’s old fashioned observation and deduction that solve the case.

The press has praised Malcolm Noble’s successful mystery novels as beautifully written and darkly funny with strong characterisation. In Take Seven Cooks he has weaved some of his readers’ favourite episodes into a new storyline for the small stage.

A cast of tried and tested characters gives players scope for interpretation and projection within the structure of a detective drama. Take Seven Cooks is a play set in the early 1960s and features characters who regularly pop up in Malcolm’s popular Timberdick book series.
