Is there a bigger group of psychotics and sociopaths than nursery rhyme characters?  Read some nursery rhymes — you know it’s true!  That makes heinous crimes, such as the tragic case of Humpty Dumpty, quite difficult to solve.  Detective Green and the Punnish Sir (Yes, he’s always scrambling for egg puns!)  have been called in to investigate a crime scene where a Mister Humpty Dumpty has been found shattered and fowl play is suspected.  They have one hour to solve the crime — the same time frame as a typical Law and Order episode, minus commercials.  Can they do it?  The yolk’s on you if you think this hilarious tongue-in-cheek play is for young children.  There are so many puns and plot twists in this comic romp, even the playwrights were surprised by the ending!
