Vintage Stock Theatre - Murder Mystery

Saturday, August 6 at 6 pm and Sunday, August 14 at 5 pm

Presented by Vintage Stock Theatre

It's 1948, and folk in a small village are feeling more cheerful now with the war ended and hoping life will get back to normal. They turn out to a "Welcome Back Tea" for one of their own who joined up and is finally coming home, with a wife and a butler. But his arrival sparks questions - why was he so late coming back? couldn't he come home for his father's funeral? why does he appear to argue with just about everyone? Mayhem and death ensue before the puzzles are answered, in "Murder Indeed Sir." Not suitable for children.

Cost: Tickets must be pre-purchased from Vintage Stock Theatre. Details at vintagestock.on.ca.
