Description

A world premiere based on the classic mystery by Dorothy L. Sayers

Adapted by Frances Limoncelli. Directed by Paul S. Holmquist.

Wedding bells have finally rung for amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey and novelist Harriet Vane. But their quiet, country honeymoon becomes a farce full of eccentric locals, exploding chimneys and even a body found in the wine cellar. This inauspicious beginning begs the question – when life gets in the way, can love persevere? Peter Greenberg and Jenifer Tyler return in this sequel to the blockbuster hit Gaudy Night.

Recommended for ages 15 and older.
