Deep in the heart of the English countryside, the children of St Winifred's and St Albert's schools find themselves caught up in a curious mystery when they go on a camping trip to the beautiful and peaceful Dumsey Meadow. With sleuth-like commitment the children attempt to find answers to some puzzling questions - Why do the cows and sheep appear to be laughing? Why is the Farmer always singing? Why did the Dumsey apple harvest fail for the first time in 300 years and who is the scary old woman with the horrible cackle? Set in the 1930's, this is a musical for mystery lovers of any age and will have you on the edge of your seat trying to work out 'why-is-it', 'what-is-it' and 'who-dunnit'?!
