A young girl's suicide in an English industrial city brings a detective to the doorway of a British family, allegedly on a routine inquiry in connection with the death. But plot twists and surprises will keep you guessing during this haunting thriller about the respectable Birling family, whose secrets and sins are exposed when the mysterious Inspector Goole interrupts their lives. This popular drawing-room mystery by J.B. Priestley is a fascinating look into the world of a wealthy person as he or she is faced with guilt or blame for a moral wrong.

The Stuntmen united in 2009 for a single purpose - to never again perform in a "talking heads" comedy sketch. They were weary of seeing scenes in which two modern-day people sit and talk about events that occur off stage. The Stuntmen deliver an eclectic array of sketches inspired by the action film genre. And yes, the action occurs on stage. They're physical, frenetic, and we're not afraid to take a few bumps and bruises for the cause.
The Stuntmen's shows are filled with car chases, ninjas, time bombs, time travel, bank heists, and unblockable kicks. Conspicuously absent? Scenes in which two generic friends talk about their day over a latte.
The Stuntmen bring over 30 years of combined comedic performance experience to deliver shows that demand the audience's attention. Action movies are high stakes, over-the-top affairs with heroes and villains and conflict; add a humorous twist, and voila! The Stuntmen.
