One of David's earliest performances on stage was with a local church group in a show called Wanted, One Body. Somewhat raunchy- sounding for a Church of Scotland production, but it's a murder mystery written by Charles Dyer.
Old Mr Barraclough is dead leaving a vast fortune to be split between his stepdaughters and his staff, however his body has been stolen, then both step daughters die iin mysterious circumstances. Everyone has a reason for wanting them dead due to the sisters habit of bribery and blackmail, but who did it? The aggressive chauffeur? The victimised secretary? The dippy maid? The insane undertaker? Or the deaf and blind Doctor? Its a ripping good yarn full of sliding panels and trap doors with half the cast immersed in the thriller and the other half running riot.
