The Cannon Theatre at 410 Great Rd. in Littleton is excited to announce that tickets are now on sale for their upcoming Fall Play, the murder mystery spoof, Murdered To Death, by Peter Gordon, directed by Michael McGarty of Harvard, MA. The cast includes local actress Victoria Powell of Hudson, MA.
This murder mystery revolves around the bumbling sleuth, aptly named Inspector Pratt. Set in the late 1920's, this hilarious spoof is based on the typical Agatha Christie plot -- murder in a country mansion with an assembled group of eccentric house guests/suspects. The household consists of the hostess Mildred and her downtrodden niece Dorothy and their unconventional butler Bunting. The initial guests are Colonel Craddock, who was an old flame of Mildred's and she is keen to re-ignite their earlier passion, and his wife Margaret. Followed shortly by the dapper but shady French art dealer Pierre Marceau and his accomplice Elizabeth Hartley-Trumpington. Last to arrive, is an inquisitive neighbour Joan Maple who cajoles an invitation to join the party for dinner, and who has a penchant for murder scenes! Following a sudden death at the house, the incompetent Inspector is called, along with his young Constable Thompkins, and the ensuing hours see him interrogate and try to piece the evidence together. Much ineptness and bumbling ensues, as the laughter is non-stop for this comedic mystery!
