‘The Real Inspector Hound’ has a fabulous script that was backed by some terrific acting. The fact that it was a play within a play was interesting with the stage creating a mirror image of the audience and their reactions to the play. The absurdist play parodies the pomposity of critics as well as the clichés of whodunits. The play is entertaining with a fourth wall being created between the characters on stage and broken down, dragging the critics into the play. What should have been a fairly straightforward (boring?) cliché turned into an incredible destruction of exactly that.
