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.
