Featuring: Jenny Fielding, Christopher Connell, Jarod Rouleau, Barbara Bourgeois, Amy Cook, Brian Sensale, Tim Vincent, Paul Warner and Jon Workman
What makes for a great mystery? The answer is thick fog, an English countryside manor, a stranger with car problems who finds a man shot dead in his wheelchair with his wife standing nearby holding a gun! Did she do it? Maybe, but there are others of the household with just as good a motive. You don’t want to miss one of Agatha Christie’s perfect set ups of delicious misdirection!
