Audiences may die laughing

St Luke’s Players’ production of Murdered to Death is on

Matt Cowlrick (Pierre Marceau)

St. Luke’s Players changes gear for its final production of the season.

The troupe moves from the recent thriller I’ll Be Back Before Midnight, to a light-hearted farce Murdered to Death, directed by Neville Owen. The hilarious spoof of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple and Blake Edwards’ Inspector Clouseau twists and turns with side-splitting antics and ever-increasing merriment and confusion, with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight audiences.

The play introduces the inept and bungling Inspector Pratt, who battles against the odds to solve the murder of the house’s owner. But will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will the audience die laughing first?

The play opened on May 23 at 8 p.m. at St Luke’s Hall, 3821 Cedar Hill X Rd., and continues for evening performances on May 25, 26, 30, 31 and June 1, 2 at 8 p.m., with 2 p.m. matinees on May 26, 27, June 2 and 3.

Tickets for St Luke’s Players’ production of Murdered to Death are on sale at Ivy’s Book Shop, 2188 Oak Bay Ave.; Petals Plus Florist, 3749 Shelbourne St.; Russell Books, 734 Fort St.; and at the door. Adults $15, Seniors/Students $13.
