It’s going to get a little intriguing at the library here in October.
Grinder Productions is presenting Marriage is Murder, a mystery-comedy by Nick Hall as the first show of the fall and winter season at the Ennotville library.
The show is about ex-spouses Paul and Polly Butler, two murder mystery writers who penned a few bestsellers when they were married, but have failed to make much use of their talents on their own.
The secret to their success (and perhaps their marriage) was that they tested the murders in their books – on each other.
The play is filled with comic twists and turns right to the end.
It is part comedy, part farce, and part reality, with both characters walking an extremely fine line between “acting” their murderous ideas, and actually carrying them out.
Starring are Eric and Julie Goudie, in their first show together as husband and wife. While they may not share Paul and Polly’s animosity towards each other just yet, both actors can sympathize with their characters’ plights:
“Yes, she does have a lot of little sayings that I find annoying sometimes,” said Eric.
“Christmas to Murgatroyd, I do not,” retorted Julie.
The show runs Oct. 15, 16, and 17, at 8pm at the Ennotville Library, with an additional 2pm Saturday matinee.
