What is the play about?
The fifteen-year-old Christopher stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes past midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington.
He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.
