A Door in a Wall – The Diplomatic Corpse – Until 15th June
In the ever-volatile country of Paudaguay, you’re never too far from danger. Even the most naïve travellers know to guard themselves against the ferocious wildlife, the free-roaming criminal gangs, and typically biannual coups.
But, in our globalised world, trouble can travel fast. Now the simmering unrest has blown over to British shores and the Paudaguayan ambassador, Emilio Ninkash, has been murdered within his own embassy. Was this a political killing? The work of a petty criminal perhaps? Or was there someone with a more personal motive? National law dictates that in an emergency, all Paudaguayan citizens may be called upon for help.
Admittedly, this happens a lot.
In this time of peril, will you answer your consulate’s call to investigate the crime, restore tranquility to our diplomatic community, and bring the killer to justice?
The chaps are running until the 15th June. Check Our ONIN’s Martin Stock’s visit here.
Tickets: £30 here
