This delightfully funny radio script is a kind of Hammer Horror spoof. The action is set in England and Egypt in the Summer of 1895 . . .
On an eerie, moonlit night, an eccentric band of adventurers and travellers gather in the drawing room of Twistleton Towers, home of recently widowed Lady Twistleton-Fife. Very soon the reason for her Ladyship’s invite becomes clear when she announces she has a quest for them, and if they accept and succeed, she will pay handsomely for their services. She explains that a curse was placed on her family when her late husband Lord Oscar Twistleton removed the sarcophagus of an Egyptian Pharaoh, known as King Ambidecstrus, from its tomb, separating him from his mother, Queen Nefatutu, and consequently triggered a powerful curse that can only be lifted if the Pharaoh is reunited with his mother. Lady Twistleton-Fife proposes that the assembled company go on an expedition to Egypt to find the sarcophagus of the Queen and bring it back with them.
26 characters but can be produced with a much smaller cast.
