Aberystwyth Mon Amour
A New Stage Version by Malcolm Pryce
Prepare to enter the extraordinary world of ‘Welsh Noir’ in this brand new stage adaptation of Malcolm Pryce’s smash-hit comedy crime novel.
All over town, schoolboys are disappearing, but nobody knows why. Louie Knight, Aberystwyth’s best (and only) private detective is on the case. With his side-kick Calamity Jane they begin to uncover a conspiracy that reaches as high as the Druids and as low as the Pimp and Judy circuit. It will take more than a double scoop of raspberry ripple from Sospan’s ice-cream kiosk or a cone from the 24 hour whelk stall to solve this mystery. What has it to do with the Welsh Atlantis? Where does the sadistic games teacher Herod Jenkins fit in? Just who exactly was Gwenno Gueavara? And will Louie ever reconcile with the luscious Myfanwy Montez?
With its colourful cast of characters, wit and intricate plotting that will keep you guessing right up to the death-defying climax, ‘Aberystwyth Mon Amour’ promises an entertaining and unique night out at the theatre.
