The sequal to 2010’s Murdered to Death!

It’s 1939 and storm clouds are gathering over Europe.  Colonel Charles Craddock (Carlisle Jukes) has inherited Bagshot House and converted the property into a hotel for the discerning guest.  The staff includes the housekeeper, Martha Armstrong (Gretchen Malbrough), the cook, Lily Tuthill (Gayle Walters-Barrios), and his nurse, Ann Parsley (Danielle Marchive).  His current guests include Lady Isadora Polluck (Lydia Courtney-Voigt), Count Puchlik of Puszczykowo (Frank Davis), and Captain Henrietta Woolmer-Cardington (Patti Loupe).   The evening’s entertainment is being arranged by Cynthia Maple (Donna Benda) who is known for murder mystery evenings.  Then the bumbling Inspector Pratt (Joel Waldron) appears on the scene with grim news for Colonel Craddock, but that’s just the beginning. Who is the strange Polish Count? Is Henrietta really an army Captain? And how does the eccentric thespian, Longfellow, fit in to the equation? These are just some of the characters who make Pratt’s return a chaotic nightmare as the bodies pile higher and higher.  Please be aware that there will be offstage gunshots and an explosion during the show.
