Last night, 10 tortoises were massacred in a tombola-related prank gone wrong. So tonight, all members of the Beakington Council... AKA you... will be hauled before an independent adjudicator... AKA me... to find out what happened. An interactive comedy whodunnit from the mind of an absolute (Edinburgh Comedy Award-winning) twonk.
