Wanted: One Body!
by Raymond Dyer; producer Ken Richardson
10-12 May 1979
In the best Hammer Horror tradition, the action takes place in a classic old dark house set in rising flood waters and swirling mists on the edge of the lonely marshes. This is Greenacres, the home of the Barraclough family, to which come a pair of solicitors to read the will of the late, but not greatly lamented, Mr Barraclough, only to learn that his body has mysteriously vanished along with the will.
Wanted: One Body! is a classic murder mystery of disappearing bodies, sliding panels and howls in the night. It is a whodunnit and a thriller, but with the accent on laughter, and has been a popular staple of amateur theatre since its first production in 1961.
