The Village Theater Company is pleased to present "UnMurdered" at The Village Church - Lutheran in Lacombe.
Directed by Karen Hoyt, the play will be performed by youth theater campers, aged 14-18, as the culmination of a week-long theater camp held by the church.
Performances are Friday, July 28 at 7pm, following a dinner at 6pm, and July 29 at 2 pm (performance only).
This is a funny, smart play and is packed full of mystery, laughs and surprises. When Dashiel Reznor, an arrogant and egocentric murder mystery novelist, arrives at the Bygone Days Artists’ Retreat, he is ready for some rest, relaxation and relief. . . from both his writer’s block and his girlfriend.
Upon arrival, however, he discovers his room is occupied by a penniless opera singer named Anna Maria, who refuses to leave. The other guests are a colorful group of artists: the poet laureate of Wyoming, interpretive dancers, and a woman who thinks she is the last princess of the Romanovs. When Anna Maria appears to have been tossed out of a window, Detective Binnix is convinced of Dash’s guilt. It isn’t long after that Binnix suffers a similar fate as Anna Marie, and Dashiel was the only one upstairs with the detective.
How can he prove his innocence when everyone is so quick to leap to conclusions? It’s unreal! With an unexpected twist, not everything is as it seems in this delightful mystery, and the audience will keep guessing until the very “gotcha” ending!
