The Butler Did It, by Todd Wallinger
What do you get when you have a very proper butler, a fiery Cockney maid, the World’s Greatest Mystery Author Edwina Corry, and a household of feisty dowagers, chatty priests, and jet-setting youngsters?
A darkly comic murder mystery, that’s what.
From the very start of Edwina’s investigation into the murder of an eavesdropping neighbor boy, the evidence is stacked against the very proper butler, Jenkins. Of course, when it’s discovered he’s in possession of the murder weapon, Jenkins is tied to a chair to await the police. The only problem? Jenkins didn’t do it! He has just half an hour to prove it — all the while still tied to the chair!
Presented by the Friends of East Troy Lions Public Library and directed by the Village Players’ own Mary Hubbard Nugent, this darkly comic murder mystery, set in the British countryside, will perform at Ivan’s Backstage in East Troy on Friday, September 25 (7PM), Saturday, September 26 (7PM), Sunday, September 27 (2PM), Friday October 2 (7PM), and Saturday, October 5 (7PM).
