McNeese Theatre is thrilled to bring the classic play, "Sleuth," by Anthony Shaffer to the Lake Area. "Sleuth" is described as an "edge-of-your-seat mystery" - filled with stunning plot twists - that is not only an exciting "whodunit" but also a fascinating "whodunwhat."
"Sleuth" juggles a number of themes - deceit, jealousy, game playing, class war, British arrogance and the humiliation of the outsider.
It's a play full of surprises so you're asked to avoid those who have already seen it: loved ones must by shushed, strangers put politely but firmly in their place. With that being said, it won't hut you to know that rich and famous Andrew Wyke, an author of mystery novels, invites his wife's young lover, Milo Tindle, to his mansion for a drink. What follows is a deadly chain of events that leaves bodies on the carpet, blood on the stairs and detectives at the door.
The play will be directed by Diane Rahtbun and will be staged at the Lace Charles Little Theatre's New Stable Playhouse.
Dates are March 10-12 with show times at 7:30 p.m. on March 10 & 11 and at 2 p.m. on March 12.
