NAPLES, NY (JUNE 2012) - Bristol Valley Theater, the Finger Lakes' award-winning live professional theater continues their 20th Anniversary Season on Main Street with Agatha Christie's Go Back for Murder, a plot- twisting whodunit by the queen of stage suspense.
The mystery, a rarely performed gem, will play from July 12 – 22, and is sponsored by Canandaigua National Bank and CIG Insurance. In it, the lovely Carla Le Merchant learns a terrible family secret: her mother died in prison for poisoning her father. But the mother makes a deathbed declaration of innocence, and the dutiful daughter sets out to discover the truth and clear her mother's name.
“It's classic Christie, with plenty of suspicious characters and twists and turns,” says Bristol Valley Artistic Director, Karin Bowersock, who directs the play.
Performances run from July 12 – 22 at the theater at 151 S. Main Street in Naples. For reservations and further information, call the box office at 585 374-6318 or visit www.bvtnaples.org
Performance times are Thursday – Saturday at 8 and Sunday at 2 (first week) and Wednesday at 2, Thursday at 2 and 8, Friday and Saturday at 8 and Sunday at 2 (second week). Ticket prices range from $33 for adults to $12 for children, with senior, student and group discounts available.
“I'm a big mystery buff,’ “adds Bowersock, “and we've added to the fun by taking an approach inspired by the style of classic film noir of the 1940's and 50's—shades of films like The Big Sleep and Double Indemnity.”
The cast features some familiar faces to BVT audiences, including Mark Poppleton, Doug Cordes, Adam Corcoran, Eleni Beja, Sara Fetgatter, Lindsay Zaroogian, and David Kimple, as well as newcomers Melissa Jessel, Matthew Krob and Amber Smith.
The Bristol Valley Theater 20th Anniversary Season continues through September 2 A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Barefoot in the Park, and Pass the Popcorn. The season is sponsored by Constellation Brands with additional support from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
