Episode 11.11: Who Stabbed Simpkins?

Monday 6th June 2016 at The Wardrobe Theatre.

It’s Reg’s first day as a door-to-door salesman and after making a successful Tupperware sale to Constance, he and Billy offend Gina and get themselves barred from the pub. Meanwhile, work experience student Scarlett is learning the ropes at the salon and after giving Big Dick Johnson a kale wrapped massage, discovers that Harold has been giving his clients lots of “extras”.

Simpkins is on death’s door after being stabbed by three separate attackers! A distraught Sazz has fond memories of her uncle and so takes it upon herself to solve the crime. With the help of Suzi and Pablo, she provokes a confession out of the vengeful Rita and also points the finger at Dick and Constance, both of whom admit their crimes freely and show no remorse. Sazz demands they pay for their crimes but the three appeal to the community, arguing that Newtown is a better place without Simpkins – they want to go to the hospital and finish the job!

Memorable Moments:
– Constance taking great glee in bathing in Simpkins’ blood
– Several very short, one-line scenes of Pablo consoling Rita
– Gina arriving for a massage at the salon but all she can here is sex noise from the back rooms

Will the community decide to end Simpkins’ life?
Will Rita, Dick and Constance pay for their crimes?
How much longer can Harold go on giving his massage clients “extras”?
