The Spider’s Web @ Cascades Theatrical Company

  • FRI-SUN – “Clarissa, wife of a diplomat, is adept at spinning tales of adventure but when a murder takes place in her drawing-room she finds live drama much harder to cope with.

Hilarity ensues when they are interrupted by the arrival of wry detective, Inspector Lord. A conscious parody of the detective thriller, Christie delivers a unique blend of suspense and humor. There is tension and laughter in equal parts in an intricate plot of murder, police, invisible ink, hidden doorways, and secret drawers.”
