Murdered to Death
by StageCenter Community Theatre
Feb. 11 - Feb. 12
“I start off with the unmistakable and then I proceed right up to the unmistakable.”
Murdered to Death is both a spoof of and homage to English mysteries, especially Agatha Christie's. Set in the 1930's in a country manor, it contains a cast of characters guaranteed to delight. The audience can only wonder whodunnit: the butler, the shady French art dealer, the socialite, the Colonel, who knows? Will the inept Inspector figure it out before everyone meets their doom, or will the audience die laughing first?
