Theatre to die for

From the reigning queen of whodunits, Agatha Christie, comes a mod 1960s story of murder, intrigue, and romance.  Trinity Western University’s School of the Arts, Media and Culture (SAMC) presents Go Back For Murder, playing October 23 – November 3…just in time for Hallowe’en.

Sixteen-years before the play begins, Caroline Crale is sent to prison for murdering her husband.  But when Caroline’s daughter comes of age, she receives a secret letter that Caroline wrote before she died—assuring her daughter that she was in fact innocent.  Carla enlists the help of a handsome young lawyer to delve into the past and find out what really happened.  Can any of the witnesses be trusted?  Who has something to hide?

Starring as the young, determined Carla (and also appearing in flashbacks as Carla’s mother) is Julie Casselman.  Julie, now in her final year of SAMC’s BFA Acting program, has professional theatre credits to her name already.  This summer she was the Composer and Sound Designer for Scarlet Satin Productions’ original show [un]BOX[ed] in Vancouver, and in 2011 she performed in Pacific Theatre’s The Great Divorce, directed by two-time Jessie Award winner Kyle Rideout.

“This show has everything you could want in a murder mystery,” said Casselman.  “Clues and red herrings, death by poison, romance where you least expect it, and of course the gorgeous mansion with a host of quirky characters.”  Among the suspects Julie’s character investigates are a femme fatale, a secretive governess, a tycoon with a vendetta, and the friendly chemist who might be up to more than science. “There’s only one murderer, but everyone has something to hide.”

Starring Benjamin Buckingham, Julie Casselman, Mark Fleming, Cody Friesen, Charissa Hurt, Jaclyn Lowdermilk, Sarah Ruth, David Shoffner, Liz Squires, and William Tippery.  Directed by Lloyd Arnett with costumes by Sabrina Evertt, lighting by Alia Stephen, and set by Jay Havens.  Stage managed by Andrew Gundy, Brittany Gainer, and Audrey Herold.

Playing October 23 – November 3 at 7:30pm Tues-Sat with 2:00pm Saturday matinees.  Special pricing on the first Tuesday.  For tickets and information, visit www.twu.ca/theatre or email theatre@twu.ca.
