Smooth, charming and a favourite with the ladies, he is actually something of a cad.
James Pond – Best Man
Licensed to kill and dressed to thrill, James Pond 006 is a reluctant Best Man at the wedding of Miss Penny Money and Carlton Carruthers.
Miss Penny Money – Bride
Organised, efficient and practical, Miss Penny Money always appears to be fully in control.
Owen Money – Father of the Bride
A gentlemanly but impoverished landowner, Owen was left a widower when Penny, his only child, was very young.
Snoop – Butler
A faithful and long-serving family retainer, Snoop is devoted both to his master, Owen, and to Owen’s daughter, Penny, whom he has known since she was born.
Mona Lotte – Bridesmaid
Pouting and petulant, her pose as a languid femme fatale actually masks a severe sense of inferiority.
Polona Psychotikova – Bridesmaid
As sleek, sultry and sinuous as an exotic cat, Polona is in many ways the epitome of a Russian spy, although her voice bears only traces of a Russian accent.
D. I. Graysells – The detective sent to solve the crime.
(This part can be played by Carlton Carruthers who dies in scene one before D. I. Graysells arrives.)
Believing strongly in the power of the mind to fathom out crimes, D. I. Graysells likes to involve as many minds as possible in solving his cases.
