This is the last week to catch the Ladysmith Little Theatre’s production of the madcap farce Let’s Murder Marsha.
Written by Monk Ferris, Let’s Murder Marsha takes place in New York in the home of Tobias and Marsha Gilmore, a posh Park Avenue apartment.
Tobias is a stockbroker who has recently made it big, and the two are enjoying a wealthy lifestyle. Marsha, a housewife, has a secret addiction to reading murder mystery novels.
Marsha overhears her husband discussing her upcoming birthday surprise with an interior decorator. To her ears, though, it sounds like they are planning to murder her.
Enlisting the help of her neighbour and maid, Marsha sets out to turn the tables. Adding to the complication is Marsha’s mother-in-law, who shows up for the party a day early and the maid’s boyfriend, a police officer Marsha suspects knows what she’s up to.
And when Marsha’s intended victims discover what she has planned, they decide to teach her a lesson by actually pretending to be murderers.
Let’s Murder Marsha runs until Sun., May 27, and tickets are $20. For more information or to reserve your ticket, call the box office at 250-924-0658 or click here.
