PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Here's a delightful comedy that spoofs English mystery plays, but with a decidedly American flavor. Miss Maple, a society dowager noted for her "imaginative" weekend parties, invites a group of detective writers to eerie Ravenswood Manor on Turkey Island, where they are to assume the personalities of their fictional characters. The hostess has arranged all sorts of amusing 'incidents.' Everything from the mystery voice on the radio to the menacing face at the window, secrets abound in the creepy old mansion. Why does the social secretary carry a hatbox everywhere she goes? Who's the corpse in the wine cellar? And how about the astonishing female who arrives via helicopter during a howling storm? When an actual murder takes place, each of the "guests" realizes he or she is marked for death. The outraged hostess offers an immense reward to the "detective" who brings the killer to justice. What an assortment of zany sleuths! An inscrutable Oriental, a seedy gumshoe, a scholarly clergyman, a sophisticated New Your couple, an intellectual type, who idolizes Sherlock Holmes. When they're not busy tripping over the clues, they trip over each other. The climax is a true seat-grabber!

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm
Sunday, March 18th at 2:00 pm
Adults are $10, seniors and children are $8
