"A Murder Has Been Renounced" Premieres Here and There

My newest murder mystery comedy "A Murder Has Been Renounced" will make it's debut to both sides of the world .. literally. In June in White Stone Virginia, USA  and then in July in Queensland Australia. 


The play centers around Detective Nick Dashell and his wife Darla (previously appearing in the play "Irritation To A Murder")  the couple find themselves stranded in a remote area. The car has broken down. They seek shelter in  large estate populated by some very odd ball characters such as a sarcastic maid named Deidre and a shady gentleman named Captain Trucage. 

Only seeking to use the phone, they learn the lines are down and the roads are washed out due to the storm. It that were not enough, they also find themselves involved in some mysterious events: Mrs Ludos' necklace is stolen and gunshots were heard.

 Should they hang out and help solve the mystery? Sure, why not? After all, they can't leave. Perhaps stranger than the inexplicable occurrences of the evening, are the actual guests they find at the estate. Everyone is acting very oddly and using really bad British accents. And when one of the guests is found strangled in the kitchen, no one seems to be alarmed except for Nick and Darla. Typical.

The Lancaster Players in White Stone Virginia will present the World Premiere at the Playhouse  361 Chesapeake Drive (Rt 200) in White Stone on   June 10-11 & 17-18 & 23-24-25 - Evenings 7:00PM Social Hour – 8:00PM Curtain  and June 12 & 19 - Matinees 2:00PM Social Hour – 3:00PM Curtain
