Whodunnit: A Comedy Thriller is looking to fill 4 roles in order to complete the cast.

A group of six strangers - and a butler - have gathered for a black-tie dinner in the English country mansion of a wealthy lawyer during a thunderstorm. One of the guests, identified only as an "oily Levantine," tells his fellow dinner guests that he has information with which to blackmail each and every one of them. This, of course, makes him ripe for murder...
