Michael Starkwedder is having an unusual night; he’s run his car into a ditch near the South Welsh coastline, snuck into a stranger’s house, and, in doing so, witnessed the aftermath of a murder. Richard Warwick is dead, and his wife, Laura, is holding the gun. However, Michael has reason to believe that Laura isn’t the culprit, and he becomes determined to oust the real murderer from a growing list of suspects. This 1958 Agatha Christie classic promises satisfying twists and instinct-testing puzzles.
Lazy Susan Dinner Theatre
When Lazy Susan Dinner Theatre's doors open for each evening's performance, guests are greeted and escorted to their tables where they can order cocktails. Then, with thirsts parched and pocket watches swinging, they move onward to a hot buffet of made-from-scratch Pennsylvania Dutch dishes, including breads, roast beef, chicken, fish, and housemade desserts. But sweets aren't the only treat here. After dessert, the curtain opens to family-friendly Broadway-style shows that incite laughter, explore American history, or challenge theatergoers to discern which actors are real ghosts. And to tie the dinner and show together even tighter, the performers are the same people pouring the coffee. DC Metro Theater Arts notes that "the warm ambiance found at The Lazy Susan is indeed half of the fun of going."
