The British Players present "Something's Afoot" by David Cos, James McDonald, Ed Linderman and Robert Gerlach.
A zany, entertaining musical that takes a satirical poke at Agatha Christie mysteries and musical styles of the English music hall of the '30s. Ten people are stranded in an isolated English country house during a raging thunderstorm. One by one they're picked off by cleverly fiendish devices. As the bodies pile up in the library, the survivors frantically race to uncover the identity and motivation of the cunning culprit. This production will run from June 9 to June 24 in the Kensington Town Hall.
