Dog Story Theater, whose mission is promoting and nurturing local performing artists and writers, premiers a new comedy next week, by local playwright and director, Chuck Fortenbacher!
The play combines modern comedic melodrama with classic murder mystery. In a mansion in 1941, Luther Becket, eccentric millionaire, has gathered several guests for a dinner party to celebrate the success of Luther’s recent war profiteering conspiracy. Each has played an instrumental role in the plot and shall receive a small fortune for their services. When Luther is murdered at his own party, his guests must search the mansion for their money, while fearing the murderer amongst them. Murder at Graves End takes the audience through a thrilling mystery with gut-wrenching comedy throughout.
The comedy is produced by University Wits, a Grand Rapids fringe theatre company that is focused on bringing new and original plays to life.
Performances are May 16-25, 8pm. There will also be performances at 10:30pm on May 18 and 25 and a matinee at 3pm on May 19.
Tickets are $13.
