LCPC to Present Murder Mystery Spoof

“The Real Inspector Hound,” a Tom Stoppard play that spoofs the whodunits of Agatha Christie, will be presented for five performances beginning this Friday evening by the La Canada Presbyterian Church Drama Ministry.

Directed by Justin S. Fisher, the family-friendly comedy presents the clichéd plot of a secluded English country manor house, ominous radio reports of a criminal on the loose, visitors behaving suspiciously, a relative with a shady past and an unidentified dead body.

It will be staged in the church’s Worship Arts Center at 8 p.m. this Friday, Nov. 7, and Saturday, Nov. 8, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Nov. 9. There will be two performances the following weekend, at 8 p.m. on Nov. 14 and 15.

Written in the early 1960s and constructed as a play within a play, the story involves two theater critics, Moon and Birdfoot, who are preparing to review the latest mystery. Can they stay on the sidelines as the plot unfolds?

Fisher invites the community to enjoy some hilarious live theater – with the challenge of trying to figure out whodunit!

Admission is $15, and two-for-one tickets are available for students, seniors, veterans and YMCA members. La Canada Presbyterian Church is located at 626 Foothill Blvd. For more information about this latest offering in the church’s Ovations Arts Series, visit ovations@lacanadapc.org or call (818) 790-6708, ext. 251.
