The Butler Did It

By: Walter Marks and Peter Marks

Directed by: Shauna Kiefiuk

Performances: December 2, 3, 9, 10, 11 (m), 15, 16, 17

The scene is the set where Anthony J. Lefcourt, writer and director, is rehearsing his new play, a "classic whodunit" (in which all the characters are named Butler) with which he hopes to regain the success which has eluded him in recent seasons.  Desperately eager to stimulate his cast to their best efforts, he has deliberately with-held the final scene of the play from them, but his patience is worn thin by the petty jealousies and romantic rivalries which detract from their concentration.  In an effort to spur them on he "stages" the murder of one of the actresses, after which the plot begins to twist and turn with such dazzling ingenuity - and hilarity - that soon actors and audience alike have lost track of what is real and what is make believe - until a surprise ending sets matter straight in a most bizarre and ironic way.
