The mission for Monty Navarro is simple: murder eight members of the D’Ysquiths family in order to become the new leader. The fun comes with the strategy in making all their deaths look like accidents so as not to arise suspicion. Each time Monty devises a new murder plan, he winks at the audience knowingly. The audience responds with laughter as they enjoy being included in his devious plot. John Rapson’s comedic performance is fantastic as he plays the entire D’Ysquith Family and then acts out their subsequent demise. Each time a new member of the family is introduced is exciting, especially when it is a female character. Rapson’s acting is purposefully over the top and delightful.
