If Monty Python were tasked with rewriting an Agatha Christie murder mystery, the results wouldn't be half as funny as The Murder Room, where "murder most foul" becomes "mayhem most farcical." Mavis Templeton Hollister returns to Brynwood Cottage in northern England only to find her husband, Edgar, waiting to greet her ... which is slightly distressing, considering she was 99% sure she had killed him earlier. She quickly "finishes the job" but Edgar's disappearance kick-starts a remarkable zany chain of events. Plodding police inspectors, mysterious hidden compartments, dull-witted relations and noisy servants all make The Murder Room an utterly charming place to be. Now Bowie Community Theatre stages a fresh production of this "killer" comedy from prolific playwright Jack Sharkey. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Are your friendships based on tacit mutual agreements? If so, what happens when one person does something completely different and unexpected? Serge has bought a modern painting for a huge sum of money. Marc hates it and can’t believe his friend could possibly want such a work. Yvan attempts, unsuccessfully, to placate both sides. The question is: Are you who you think you are or are you who your friends think you are? The tension and comedy build to an outrageous climax that leaves these three old friends with some very difficult decisions to make.
Art received the Moliere Award for Best Play, Best Production, and Best Author; the London Evening Standard award for Best Comedy; and the Tony Award for Best Play.
