Vancouver International Puppet Festival
Agatha Christie returns from the dead to perform a one-woman haunted house murder mystery puppet show. It’s New Year’s Eve 1899. One by one, an enigmatic cast of characters arrive by boat at the haunting and isolated Monkswell Manor. That night, famous murder mystery author Gertrude Crump is murdered, mysteriously! The boat becomes dislodged in the storm. No one can leave until the truth is uncovered. As the characters investigate, accuse, suspect, confess, plot, flash-back, and engage in general hubbub, the audience is charged with the task of answering one simple question: Who Killed Gertrude Crump?
Tara Travis is completely charming as the narrator/puppet master… great fun!” (And winner: Outstanding Puppetry) —Toronto NOW
