Somthing's Afoot

By Book, Music and Lyrics by James McDonald, David Vos and Robert Gerlach. Additional music by Ed Linderman.

Directed by Matt Pulda

A zany, entertaining show that takes a satirical poke at Agatha Christie mysteries and musical styles of past years.

Ten people are stranded in an isolated English country house during a raging thunderstorm. One by one they're picked off by cleverly fiendish devices. As the bodies pile up in the library, the survivors frantically race to uncover the identity and motivation of the cunning culprit.

"Engaging, funny, refreshing and original."-- N.Y. Post.

"Both a spoof and a tribute to Agatha Christie ... played with fine tuned, flamboyantly melodramatic affectations." -- L.A. Times.
