TIM KELLY'S “THE BUTLER DID IT”
A delightful comedy that spoofs English mystery plays, but with a decidely 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”. Secrets abound in the creepy old mansion. 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.
Performance dates are September 26, 27, 28 and October 3, 4 and 5.
