Love triangle leads to comic unrest in Murder at the Best Western

ST. JACOBS - The St. Jacobs Country Playhouse is soon to offer a screwball suspense-comedy, Murder at the Best Western, July 20  through Aug. 7.

All is fair in love - and murder - in the witty and intriguing production about a tangled love triangle between a ditzy wife, her car salesman husband, and their buffoon dentist.

Set against the backdrop of an inconspicuous hotel room, the twisted ode to the fickle nature of love will keep the audience chuckling as relationships deteriorate, allegiances divide, and schemes escalate in absurdity.

“The buzz is already building for this killer comedy,” said artistic director of Drayton Entertainment Alex Mustakas. “Audiences will definitely be on the edge of their seats following the antics.”

A “foolproof” plan does not play out exactly as it should. Will anyone actually get murdered, or will connubial bliss reign supreme? Whatever happens, this romp will leave people screaming bloody murder by the time the curtain falls.

“This production is packed with plenty of thrills, surprises, tricks, and suspense,” said Mustakas. “Murder at the Best Western is the perfect choice for quality summer entertainment. It combines elements of drama, humour, and suspense to create an unforgettable theatre experience.”

Bob Lohrman returns to St. Jacobs Country Playhouse to direct the production after achieving success with Drayton Entertainment’s revival of Shear Madness, which played to sold-out houses earlier this year.

Murder at the Best Western stars Stephanie McNamara in the role of Arlene Miller, Jonathan Whittaker is her husband, Paul, and J. Sean Elliott is Dr. Mitchell Lovell, a dentist with an ache for murder.

Murder at the Best Western plays for a limited three week engagement with eight weekly performances July 20 to Aug. 7. Tickets are selling quickly and theatregoers are encouraged to call the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse box office at 519-747-7788 or toll free at 1-888-449-4463 to reserve seats. Or, order online at
