, Inc returns to Greenwich Library on March 22 with Bloody Murder, a new play by Ed Sala. It is a comedic take on the classic Agatha Christie murder mystery filled with gun shots, poison, knives, hidden identities and a pile of dead bodies.
The free performance takes place on Saturday, March 22 at 2 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium at Greenwich Library. Tickets are not required.
For more information, please contact Alice Bonvenuto at 622-7919.
The play starts out like a conventional murder mystery, introducing stereotypical characters, including a rich dowager, faded matinee idol, bragging major, ne'er-do-well nephew, prissy ingénue, mysterious countess and devoted maid. They're all gathered at Lady Somerset's English country estate. As the play unfolds, one realizes there is nothing conventional about it.
The play has many twists and turns which keeps the audience guessing to the very end about who did what to whom, for what reason, and who actually is who? One critic called this whodunit a "scream" while another said, "this material is fresh and fun, with revelations that will keep audiences on their toes."
Directed by Marilyn Heberling, the cast consists of Rita Aber, Marilyn Heberling, Christine Orchid, Frank Panzer, Gregg Shults and Daniel Silverstein.
