The Real Inspector Hound
September 2 - September 25, 2010
Tom Stoppard’s witty indictment of the English "whodunnit"; a satirical send up of insouciant newspaper critics that results in a hilarious cautionary tale for all who put their ego ahead of Art. Moon and Birdboot, two mediocre critics, have gone to the theatre to review yet another English murder mystery, set in the parlor of isolated Muldoon Manor. The fog rolls in and it soon becomes clear that the critics and the actors performing the play have deeper intrigues and motivations for being at the performance. Conventional boundaries, theatrical fiction, and actual reality blur, then vanish altogether, when a series of events cast doubt upon whether or not a play - or, the perfect murder is in progress.

"Great spoof of a Christie-style whodunit"
