Dinner Theater
The Mystery of Sir Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens

Based on The Mystery of Sir Edwin Drood (1870), a novel Charles Dickens left unfinished at the time of his death, Drood is a murder mystery with a comic flair and more than forty possible endings. The plot introduces a number of interesting suspects before leaving off rather abruptly. Whodunit? The unpredictable opium queen, Princess Puffer? The pious Reverend Crisparkle? One of the foreign Landless twins? The drunken graveyard Durdles? The desperate author, Bazzard? The beautiful fiancee, Rosa Bud? Or the unquestionably evil John Jasper? The Under the Lights cast won't know until the audience at the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum votes upon this and other questions during the performance. Join us for an evening of murder, mayhem, and McKenna comedy at its finest."

Dinner is served at 6:00; the play begins at 6:45.
