The high drama and low comedy of small stakes

November 10, 2010 at 4:03 pm

 

An isolated English manor. A love triangle. Threats of violence. A corpse. A man who--wait, what? It’s two corpses? Right.

An isolated English manor. A love triangle. Threats of violence. Two corpses. Suspicion--oh come on, three corpses now? Isn’t that a bit much?

Fine. An isolated English manor. A love threat. Violent triangles. Four, count ‘em, four, dead bodies! This play's synopsis is too silly to continue. Come discover how two critics at a whodunit find themselves part of the action in this absurd comedy by Tom Stoppard that takes a look at the high drama and low comedy of small stakes.

Directed by Jon Foley Sherman, "The Real Inspector Hound" opens Thursday at 8 p.m. in Beloit College's Neese Theatre. Performances will continue on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., and on Nov. 18 through Nov. 20. 

For tickets, call the box office at ext. 2755 between 12:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or purchase tickets at the door. Faculty and staff tickets are $5; student tickets are $4. No late seating!
