Stoppard’s The Real Inspector Hound opens the 25th anniversary season at Brüka Theatre on October 6, 2017. Feuding theatre critics Moon and Birdboot, the first a fusty philanderer and the second a pompous and vindictive second stringer, are swept into the whodunit they are viewing. In the hilarious spoof of Agatha Christie-like melodramas that follows, as mists rise about isolated Muldoon Manor, Moon and Birdboot become dangerously implicated in the lethal activities of an escaped madman.
The Real Inspector Hound is a madcap murder mystery farce directed by John Blomberg. Blomberg, who directed last year’s Happy Birthday Wanda June, has worked with many theatre companies in the region as an actor, director and theatre maker.
The Real Inspector Hound opens at Brüka with a post-show opening night champagne reception and appetizers from the Wild River Grille on October 6, 2017. The show runs weekly Thursday through Sunday through October 28, 2017. Evening shows begin at 8:00 pm (Artist night is Wednesday October 25, 2017 – all tickets on this night only are $10.) There is one Sunday matinee on October 15th at 2:00 PM followed by a talk back with the company and our audience. The doors open a half an hour before curtain time. The play is suggested for ages 8 and up.
