Based partially on Marcel Achard’s French Play L’Idiote (The Idiot) and the Blake Edwards film of the same name, Stagecraft Theatre’s adaptation of A Shot in the Dark is the story of a spunky, boisterous Anglo-Indian maid servant who is arrested on a charge of murder, having been found unconscious, nude, and clutching a gun, with her lover dead beside her. But this is no ordinary murder case, as the newly appointed Assistant Commissioner of Police soon learns. Everyone’s got something to hide and a series of confessions, denials and other sordid twists fuel this madcap roller coaster ride, right down to its final hilarious moments.
It was staged on Sunday, 5th June, 2016 at NCPA Experimental Theatre, Nariman Point, Mumbai.
