A princely state in India, 1930, under the British raj. To Bhopore and its opulent Summer Palace comes a handful of Western visitors to meet the outrageous Maharajah and his entourage.
There they meet the Maharajah's heir, the sensual Porgy, and his English chorus-girl mistress. They meet the enigmatic chief minister—and the aloof British resident, with his dignified little nine-year-old son. And before long they also meet sudden death....
Various people in the palace become suspects, and an imperturbable district superintendent of police is summoned. But who will he find guilty of the murder of the Maharajah?

Sam Dastor studied English at Cambridge and trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. His early theatrical experience includes a spell at the National Theatre under Sir Laurence Olivier and time spent acting in the West End. For the Royal Shakespeare Company, he has been seen in "Timon of Athens", "Tales from Ovid", and a world tour of "A Servant to Two Masters". His many television appearances include "I, Claudius"; "Yes, Minister"; "Mountbatten"; "Julius Caesar"; and "Fortunes of War". He has also appeared in the films "Made", "Jinnah", and "Such a Long Journey", recorded over a thousand broadcasts for the BBC, and narrated numerous audio books.
Essentially a "village" mystery–with the village being the self-contained world of the Bhopore palace–this production has its share of colorful characters: British, Indian and even American. Davidson gives a fully-voiced performance, with especially effective Indian accents. M.A.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
