New shows and special events have now been announced for the 2016 season.
February 6, 2016: In the basement of a theatre, an audience is waiting for a pre-show discussion to begin. A theatre scholar, house manager, critic, director, and actor have taken their place in the front of the room, poised to discuss the play. But as the lights go down, a murder takes place, and the audience must determine who among them is dying to get away with it.
Inspired by Tom Stoppard’s The Real Inspector Hound, STC will host an interactive murder-mystery party for theatre lovers who would kill to be a part of the action. STC staff will write the clues, plan the (fictional!) murder, and serve the complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvre. The audience will have to determine whodunit.
Everyone gets a character a week before the event! Here are some examples of who we might assign to you:
Lynn Scapp: a staff photographer. Ms. Scapp has been on edge ever since the publicist snapped at her for taking a photo of the lead actress’ bad side.
General Izzing: an army man who has been a fan of the theatre for years. General Izzing almost went to introduce himself to this production’s director before the show, but noticed that he seemed agitated after taking a phone call.
Ella Vader: the house manager’s neighbor. Although the two get along, it is in large part due to Ms. Vader’s tidiness; the entire building knows how particular the house manager is about cleanliness in the common areas.
