Slowly he comes to realize that people are dying without his help. He feels totally usurped and helpless.

Good naturedly twists the Agatha Christie - style murder mystery genre. Bobrick has a wickedly clever sense of humor and the laughs pile up vigorously and hilariously as DEATH IN ENGLAND wends its way through it's remarkable premise to its unexpected (and wholly satisfying) conclusion." - NY Theatre.Com 2000-1 Theatre Season Review - Vital Theatre Company
