Inspector Kapusta will leave no stone unturned to find the camp cook's missing kobassa. Okay, maybe he'll leave a couple of stones unturned. Okay, maybe he's a pretty bad detective but that just makes the play all the more hilarious.

A light-hearted romp with the funniest of all the red meats at its centre: FRIED KOBASSA!
