Longwood to present ‘Real Inspector Hound’

Published 5:33 pm Thursday, October 29, 2015

Longwood University Theatre’s production of the hilarious “whodunit,” “The Real Inspector Hound,” by Tom Stoppard will be presented Nov. 5-8 and 12-15 in the Mainstage Auditorium of the Center for Communication Studies and Theatre.

“This is a whimsical ‘whodunit’ spectacle that takes the audience by surprise at every twist and turn,” said Bruce Speas, associate professor of theatre, who is directing the production. “When two feuding drama critics clash over an Agatha Christie-style murder mystery, they suddenly find themselves involved in all the action, causing a wild series of events that parallels the play-within-the-play.”

Performances will be at 7 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays and at 3 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $10 for general admission; $8 for senior citizens, Longwood faculty/staff and students from other colleges/schools and $6 for Longwood students with ID.
