The Vagabond Players
Murder By the Book
By Duncan Greenwood and Robert King
Directed by Jacqollyne Keath
When vitriolic thriller writer, Selwyn Piper crosses swords with his venomous ex-wife Imogen, the result is bound to be Murder by the Book. Vagabond Players are delighted to open the new season with this clever and witty thriller, where crisp dialogue exchanges and clever plot twists will keep audiences laughing and guessing right up to the final curtain. Adding to the fun is the bright young man next door who teams up with Selwyn’s attractive secretary and tries to solve the mystery. Then, when Selwyn’s befuddled publisher gets caught in the crossfire, the results are hilarious.
Directed by Jacqollyne Keath, Murder by the Book stars Harry Pering as the acerbic writer, Selwyn Piper, Michelle Collier as his equally mean-spirited wife, and Mike Parker as John Douglas, the publisher who ends up as a pawn in the game of murder. Alanna Nicole plays Christine Scott, the secretary who has to cope with bodies as well as books, and Alex Ross is Peter Fletcher, the neighbor who takes delight in playing Sherlock while helping a pretty damsel in distress. You’ll find twists and turns, laughs and surprises galore in this light-hearted thriller—black comedy at its best, and the perfect opener for the 2014-2015 Season. Don’t miss it!
