Description of show or reasons for ACT selecting:

   A typical Agatha Christie mystery, believed to be the inspiration for the board-game Clue.  The longest running English play in history - more than a half-century in London’s West End.  Adapted to Prince Edward Island: 8 people cooped up in a big bed-and-breakfast during a blizzard.  From radio broadcasts and a phone-call, it becomes evident that a murderer is among them, wanting to kill another two victims.  Every person is a suspect, and audiences were invited to guess ‘who-dunnit’ … and, following a theatre convention, not reveal the outcome to others.  The ending is a big surprise.

   Added touches …

• Carl Bagnall ‘won’ his role via a PEI Symphony auction

• An original music score was composed by Carl Mathis, with a signature tune for each character.

• Fancy refreshments were served, allegedly from the kitchen of Monkswell Manor (the murder scene); inspired by the play’s title, cheese and cheesecake were featured.
