Synopsis

Derek Figge of Cascara and Figge is the most ruthless estate agent around.

He will do almost anything to get a sale. No, wait a minute, he will do anything to get a sale. Lie, cheat, steal, de-fraud you name it. However, it is all about to come crashing down around his neck.

Estate agents for sale boards are going missing all over town. But strangely not Derek’s. The office gets burgled. Derek puts in an ambitious insurance claim. A disgruntled client decides to take the law into her own hands and takes Derek, his pregnant assistant and an off-duty Policeman captive (albeit unintentionally) at the point of a loaded Baguette. In an effort to get Derek to tell the truth (for once) his assistant uses her newly found skills in hypnotism on him. Oh dear, oh dear! He’s in trouble now.

Who is Sid and will somebody shut that bloody alarm up?

Cast

Derek Figge: Owner of Cascara and Figge. In his Fifties. Speaks with RP accent that slips from time to time into a regional accent especially when talking to Sid or Mrs. Figge. Very sure of himself to the point of arrogance.

Jane Howarth: Derek’s assistant. Aged between 19 and 25. Portrays the demeanor of an airhead but there is intelligence in there somewhere

Janice Hollis: Mid-forties. The beleaguered client of Cascara and Figge. Doesn’t suffer fools gladly.

DCI Kevin Goodwin: CID Officer. Mid Fifties. Getting ready to retire. Suffers from a stomach ulcer.

Sid: The mysterious Sid. A none speaking walk-on part the character is never seen, always hidden behind something.

The following two characters are optional (see page 23 of the script)

Little Sid: Youth of 16-19 years. Son of the mysterious Sid. The more intelligent of the duo.

Shane: 16-19 years. Little Sid’s partner in crime. Not very bright
