Cat’s Cradle, by Leslie Sands.   Performed by Great Hall Theatre Company on 12th May 2014 at The Assembly Rooms, Norwich.

In a last desperate attempt to resurrect his career in the CID, Inspector Frost re-opens the case that ruined him – a kidnap and possible murder he failed to solve some years before. With a new piece of evidence, he returns to the village in which the disappearance occurred. Where he was once a welcome guest, he now finds the villagers are no longer interested in reliving the past and in seeing old faces. As it becomes increasingly apparent he is facing a conspiracy of silence and hostility, he enlists the assistance of a local ambitious journalist to help him with his investigations. The guilty and terrible secrets of those who have spent years shouldering the burden of the truth is finally resolved in a series of startling revelations, much to the Inspector’s horror and the surprise of the audience.

To avoid confusion with the Inspector Frost stories by R. D. Wingfield, popularised through the TV Drama ‘A Touch of Frost’ starring David Jason, GHTC’s production renames the character from Frost to Snow.
