Feuding theatre critics Moon and Birdfoot, the first a fusty philanderer and the second a pompous and vindictive second stringer, are swept into the whodunit they are viewing. In the hilarious spoof of Agatha Christie-like melodramas that follows, the body under the sofa proves to be the missing first string critic. As mists rise about isolated Muldoon Manor, Moon and Birdfoot become dangerously implicated in the lethal activities of an escaped madman.-- from publisher's website.

The plot focuses on Moon and Birdboot, two theatre critics. Both of them are watching a ludicrous setup of a country house murder mystery. The play they are watching is presented in the style of whodunit. While watching the play, coincidentally, they are also involved in certain actions which cause a number of events which are similar to the play they are watching. Tom Stoppard was also a Bristol theatre critic. He has drawn “The Real Inspector Hound” on the basis of his own experiences as a critic. The play was initially named “The Stand-ins” and later “The Critics.” The play presents a parody of a stereotypical parlor mystery written in the style of Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap.” It is also the parody of the critics who are watching the play.

The plays in this collection reveal in combination the 'frivolous' and 'serious' aspects of Tom Stoppard's talent: his sense of fun, his sense of theatre, his sense of the absurd, and his gifts for parody and satire. The author rounds off his brief introduction, giving the genesis of each piece, with the comment: 'The role of the theatre is much debated (by almost nobody, of course), but the thing defines itself in practice first and foremost as a recreation. This seems satisfactory'. Leading off is The Real Inspector Hound, the ultimate country-house whodunnit; Dirty Linen moves a Whitehall farce to Parliament Square; Dogg's Hamlet, Cahoot's Macbeth subverts Shakespeare; and After Magritte explains the inexplicable.
