A snow-stranded group of people discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst!  One by one, the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until the last, nerve-shredding moment, when all is finally revealed.  This classic play features a deliciously suspenseful story in which murder lurks around every corner!

In a series of brief, often comic episodes, the play follows a brilliant and articulate astronomer through accident-related stroke and aphasia…all the while holding onto her family, career, and place in the universe.  An uplifting play about survival, and the power of the human spirit.  Contains some adult language and situations; recommended for ages 13 and up.

The 39 Steps by Patrick Barlow and John Buchan.   8PM *except 15th 2PM
A mix of Hitchcock, Monty Python, and film-noir spoofs.  Packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a small but versatile group of actors), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance.  A fast-paced whodunit comedy for anyone who loves the magic of theatre.  Recommended for ages 11 and up
